Painted Dresser – Everybody’s Gone Surfing…

Print Friendly

Surfing U.S.A.   I couldn’t help but sing when I finally finished this dresser that I’ve been tinkering with on and off for several weeks.  I painted it three times trying to get it just right but each time I wasn’t feeling it.  Am I the only one who does this?

I was stumped until I started painting the sample trim pieces for the new chalk and clay paint I’m carrying from American Paint Company.  I felt like a kid in a candy store!

You know me, I like to mix ‘em up.  I painted the base in APC’s Beach Glass, a fabulous teal.

The top was given one nice coat of APC’s Blue Jeans then washed with a thin layer of Surfboard.  Wow!  What a cool combination that is!!

The icing on the cake was when my friend Laurie stopped by and asked if I wanted to borrow her awesome stencil for anything.  Um ~ YEAH!

I mixed up some leftover sample pots to paint a base color of orange then topped it off with another layer of yellow.

Scuffed it up a bit then sealed it with APC’s Clear Antiquing Wax and off she went to the shop to await her new owner.

  1. Thanks for allowing me to guest post ~ Shelly

  2. That is a gorgeous piece Shelly. I can look a piece for a time before I know what to do with it. My sample pieces have helped as well. The colors deepen so beautifully as they are finished. Keep inspiring us!
