Winter White Glaze Effects Dresser

About This Post

"From a tired looking finish to a sleek modern beauty! As I started sanding the drawers and that beautiful wood emerged, I was a smitten kitten. After sanding the drawers and the legs, I applied one coat of General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects. I absolutely love the whitewashed/lightened wood it creates. It was then sealed with two coats of the General Finishes High Performance Topcoat. The top was repaired to the best it could be. It was a laminate finish so there were a few bumpy spots that still remained. It’s the inevitable truth of a vintage piece. It won’t be perfect but in my case, I’ll make it the best it can be! The top and frame were chalk painted using Annie Sloan’s Athenian Black. It’s always my go-to but the way it highlights the different wood grains on each piece makes me excited every time. It was sealed using Annie Sloan’s clear wax. The original hardware was so perfect for this dresser. I cleaned it by boiling it in a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar with a touch of blue Dawn dish soap. After scouring each piece, I wiped dry. Using Rust-Oleum’s aged metallic spray paint + primer in vintage gold, I was able to create a uniform look for all the hardware. A matte clear spray was used as a topcoat." - Kristin Lia Restoration
