Custom Mixed Gel Stain MCM Dresser

About This Post

"This mid-century modern tallboy dresser is ALL quality. To treasure the historical sleek solid wood frame, I exposed it through the leg base for a beautiful raw wood feel. I also sanded the wood veneer on the entire top section for added emphasis and balance for the wood and paint combo. The ingrained original yellow of the wood was toned down with a cream-colored stain to get this clean, light finish. A mix of two gel stains by General Finishes were used to get this cream washed look: White and Nutmeg. The soft pale wood tone complements the cool blue, English Hollyhock by Behr Paint, that's been painted on the inset sides and curved drawer fronts for the bottom 3 drawers. It works wonderfully with the lightened wood. All drawer interiors have been lined with a pretty boho print in similar warm tan and cool blue shades. Protected in General Finishes Flat Out Flat topcoat." - Charm & Grit   Check out Charm & Grit's Blog Post about this project at
