Inglenook Chest of Drawers Makeover

February 06, 2017

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.
