The original brass pulls were reused as a throw back to original vintage design.
With many of the original pulls missing, new pulls were purchased from Lowe’s, adding to the updated look of the dresser.
This entry piece was transformed with Robin’s Egg Blue, along with Black used in three different ways on the cabinet.
The first was Black paint applied to the top. The second was Black Glaze used to accent and provide distinct contrast to the lower areas painted Robin’s Egg Blue. The third wad black spray paint applied to the original pulls.
With paint, glaze, and distressing, this piece was give a whole new look!
There’s nothing like taking a dated, chunky piece of furniture and seeing how paint, glaze and distressing can transform it from an eye sore to an eye catcher.
Take this large chest of drawers with shiny brass pulls. It was refinished in Turquoise, with Black Glaze accenting the molding and detailed areas. Distressed reveals white spray primer applied before Turquoise was applied by hand.
