Raw Silk Dresser and Nightstand Makeover

I recently got to try out one of the most popular new Fusion Mineral Paint colors, Raw Silk.  Raw Silk is a warm old white with barely a hint of yellow and just a touch of grey. It is the color of newly formed silk - the perfect off white.

My mother-in-law found me a dresser and a nightstand that needed some love.I decided to paint them Raw Silk so they could match and possibly sell as a set.  I applied Ultra Grip all over and then Concealer Color Blocker so I'd have to do fewer coats of paint.  Check out the video below of the furniture in progress.

I really like how they turned out!

This may be my new favorite off white.  For reference, my stairwell and trim is pure white so you can see this is an off-white.  The mirror was pretty but pretty bland until I painted the frame in Champness.

Just a little bit of paint made a big difference.

This mirror makeover only took 2/3 of a Tester size of Champness paint ($3.99)!  I just taped off the mirror and painted the wood.

Oh, and here is the cute little nightstand.

 I love this color! This may become my go to off white!  Check out this collection of all Fusion White and Off-White colors.

My mother-in-law brought me these dilapidated waterfall pieces. I prefer some stained wood on a piece when possible so I sanded down the tops and the drawer faces with my orbital sander and stained them using our Cappucinno wood stain.
