This matching dresser and nightstand set was previously painted red, which provided a great opportunity to paint over and distress back down to to that color. Latex paint needs time to cure before it can hold it’s own as a layer beneath another color. Otherwise, it will sand off easily when the top color is distressed.
So I decided to go bold, and paint the set Peacock Blue. I knew the red underneath would provide a pop, and as you can see here with the heavy rustic distressing, it does that well. Black glaze provided accenting to detailed areas, as well as a weathered look to the new color scheme.
The old pulls were spray painted a dark bronze.
