GREY AND WHITE DRESSERS - faux weathered boards






I had a pair of these smaller dressers. They had a hard
glossy white finish that was in pretty good shape that I was going to work with. The drawers however had gold detailing around the edge that I was going to change.







I added small cabriolet legs to each dresser before I started to
 paint the drawers in a custom grey, mixed from Annie Sloan
 paints. I left them to dry over night.

To get the grey weathered board look on the drawers took 2
 easy steps. I removed half of the grey paint by using a moist
 scrubby sponge and washed each face length wise. I let them
  dry again before waxing the the drawer fronts with Annie
 Sloan clear wax. Once the wax was dried and buffed I
 scrubby length wise again to remove some more of the grey
 paint. Each step removes the paint in a slightly different way
 and creates a unique weathered board look.


I uses 12 French provincial handles sprayed in a
bright white oil base paint.


 I love how the strong grey stands next to the bright white.
