A couple of months ago my client came to me with a vision of what she wanted her project dresser to look like. She found this picture below on pinterest from Gracious Living. I told her that I could come up with plan and make it happen for her.
I saw this post from a Hayley a fellow fusion blogger from coast and country vintage. It was similar to what I had in mind but not quite. So I got my thinking cap on and said I could use the two colors that she suggested using Fusion Mineral Paints Little Whale and Little Lamb accented with limestone.
Here are the 2 colors I mixed together. Mix 3 parts of Little Lamb to 1 Part of LittleWhale.
The Before Photo is plain with very bright gold handles and trim edging detail.
We started off with the blue/gray mixture of little lamb and little whale and applied it to all of the outer edgings of the dresser
Then we took a great contrasting white called Limestone for the blue. It has natural undertones and doesn't pull any pink like some whites do.
As you can see in the picture above we started applying the sliver on the bright gold detailing. We used a mixture of all 3 of these colors in the detailing work. Just one of these by itself would not have given it the dimension and color that we were going for.
For the glaze we mixed Fusion Mineral Paints 1 tsp. ash to 1 tsp. Coal Black and 1/4oz. of Glaze. We put it on with a chip brush and got it into all the nooks and crannies and then wiped it off leaving some behind on the the blue and white to add dimension and depth.
We did use a sealer on top of the Fusion Mineral Paints only because we found that it was getting scuffed and the black marks were staying on the top layer of the paint. So we sealed it so that it would be very easy to clean up with just a mild soap and water solution.
