I love this makeover!
I have only painted one other piece black and that was for a client. Black is not my normal but I knew it would work with this piece. I went to my local WoodCraft and bought a couple sacks of Old-fashioned Milk Paint. It was on sale and I couldn't pass up the price.
This brand of milk paint leaves a milky, sometimes uneven, finish.
I think it's perfect because it gives it a more worn look & some depth.
I need to mention, I do not have my dog pose. He sees the camera, a comfy rug and plops right down.
I found these pulls at Target.
I love the hammered finish.
The natural lighting makes this piece look like there is white, or some type of build-up, but it's just the sunlight.
I have to give my friend Reeves, from The Weathered Door, props for the inspiration to do a the paper art wall. You guys should check out her page. She is beyond talented!
I found an old book at Goodwill, cut out my favorite pictures, and taped them to the wall.
They are frame worthy!
I adore how this little dresser turned out.
