I purchased this dresser at the Flea Market this weekend. The exterior was a little beat up but the drawers are in great condition. It just needed a bit of cosmetic love.
For some reason, I am drawn to darker colors right now. I know, I know... it is summer. I should be seeing oranges and greens. Nope! I am craving ASCP Graphite.
I wanted this piece to be rustic and worn. I think I achieved the look I was going for.
I used 1 coat of Graphite and sanded a good amount of it away.
Then, I covered it ASCP Dark Wax. I thinned it down a bit with mineral spirits for easier application.
Then I applied Liberon Gilt Cream to highlight the details.
Finally, I added a bit of color in the styling.
I am in love with this piece. It came together very quickly and just as I had planned. The color is amazing too. I have 2 other Graphite project in the works on the back porch right now. I can't wait to share those too.
Thanks for checking in.
