Winter White Glaze Effects Dresser

About This Post

"This bare/lightened wood look is such a good way to highlight the wood grain of these gorgeous pieces. For this dresser, I sanded most of the dresser to bare wood using my Dewalt orbital sander. I like to do this sometimes, sand most of the piece, because then I’m not limited when I figure out the design. In this case, I ended up only leaving the top and the drawers with the wood exposed. The frame and legs were chalk painted using Annie Sloan’s Athenian Black. The paint was sealed using clear wax. Because the wood is a harder wood (meaning the grain isn’t as open so a stain can’t absorb as easily), I used General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects. It created the perfect whitewashed look. To protect, I used General Finishes High Performance Topcoat. I just love the durability of it. The handles were in amazing condition so I cleaned them and used Rust-Oleum’s spray paint + primer in Vintage Gold. A perfect colour to compliment the rest of the piece!" - Kristin Lia Restoration
