Rustic-Modern Teal Dresser – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!!

How are you? We are finally over the flu and feeling much better! Being home with the kids for a week gave me time to get some much needed home projects done! I painted the cement on our porch and absolutely love it!

I can’t wait to share this week’s makeover! This is a mid century dresser, in need of some love.
We painted it with Benjamin Moore’s Color Vintage Teal! After we painted it, we glazed it using Valspar’s Antiquing Glaze. If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post. We took the drawers out before we began painting, and sanded and stained them using a white wash, gray wash and Black Bean stain by Minwax. The difference with this stain job is that after we stained it, I went through and hand sanded over the stain with a 220 grit sand paper to give it a more rustic finish.
