Inglenook Chest of Drawers Makeover

I had the chance to transform a cute little dresser this weekend.  I needed a break from white after completing this dresser in Raw Silk so I chose my go-to color, Inglenook.
I did pretty limited prep on this one as the paint underneath was solid.  First, I painted on a coat of Ultra Grip to help the paint adhere which I typically always do.
Then I painted on a coat of Inglenook using my favorite brush for dressers and chests with  mainly flat surfaces, the Fusion Medium Natural Bristle Brush.
I let the first coat dry and then took an orbital sander and sanded down the edges of the drawers and legs to give the piece an antiqued look.
I love the detailing!! 
This paint dried SO evenly!!  I added a coat of Tough Coat to the top as I do with all dressers for extra protection.

Today I'm featuring a thrift store chest of drawers that my sister-in-law and I found.  I thought I'd have to paint the whole thing because of damage to the veneer. But alas, while sanding some goop off of the top, I realized that the veneer underneath was perfectly fine and sanded the whole thing.  I decided to stain the top in Cappuccino Stain Oil, the perfect rich brown.

I recently freshen up my farmhouse style dining room table in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence and did a custom mix of Lichen and Picket Fence on my Buffet. 

All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far! First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up.
