Beautiful 4 Drawer Oceanic Dresser


This waterfall style dresser already lived at least five lives!!! This piece had just the right kind of dings and dents that make for a nice rustic feel without screaming major damage however this piece had already been "refinished" once or twice and currently lived it's life in a fairly bright shade of red. The bottom drawer was an empty shell with no base and the other drawers were coated in spilled paint, purple glitter, glue and other crafty substances...


The inspiration for this piece was the gorgeous watercolour turtle print, I personally love the combination of teal green and orange and I knew I wanted to blend these colours to create the final look. For this piece I used DIY Paints in Bohemian Blue, Summer Crush, Fancy Farmgirl, Cake Batter and Mermaid Tail - I layered the colours by starting with a blended half and half base coat of bohemian blue up the bottom and summer crush from the top, down. I then used watered down paints in spray bottles to layer the various colours across the piece creating lots of texture, depth and colour variance while mimicking the flow of water. I added the turtle piece to the centre of the middle drawers to create a beautiful and vibrant focal point.


The edges of the the print were slightly blended to better match the new finish and a worn scalloped pattern was added at random across the top to create additional layers. Hand sculpted clay mouldings were used to frame out the turtle and were than painted in a metallic copper paint and treated with a patina spray to create a saltwashed effect to the metal adding even more green and blue patina to the piece. Additional saltwashed copper detailing was added along the edges and the hardware to complete the finish.


The drawer interiours were repaired or replaced as needed and refreshed with a good cleaning and sanding. The entire interiour of the piece, cabinet and drawers, was hand rubbed with a scented wax to moisturize and protect the wood for years to come. The drawer slides were cleaned and waxed for easy gliding.

**The exteriour of this cabinet was sealed with 3 coats of a highly durable urethane/acrylic topcoat in a "Flat" sheen, durable enough for use in high traffic areas.
