"Layers is what it's all about with this dresser, tearing away at half dried paint with duct tape and sanding to reveal the colours underneath. Using a patterned roller to detail the inside of the drawers. Patina Green is the most amazing colour and can look completely different in varying lighting states. Sometimes it's hard to see pieces go to their new home and this one was definitely one of those!"
