I loved it at the time, but after 15 years is needed a make-over. So we sold the bed on CL and Mr. Bliss made a new headboard, which you can read about here.
The dresser and nightstands I painted cottage white.
It was okay like that, but I always knew I would end up distressing it. And after seeing Kim's furniture makeovers I decided to paint the drawer fronts too.
I used a mix of acrylic paints I had on hand to make a slate green shade.
The wall color is a sage green, which I now hate, so I will be changing that soon to a more neutral color, which I think will make this dresser stand out even more.
SOOOO not an acurate picture of the color here. It looks kelly green in this pic, but it is actually more sage with some blue. I just wanted to give you a close-up of the distressing.
After painting the drawer fronts and sanding, I added a clear glaze to the drawer fronts to tone down the color. I was going to do a brown glaze to the rest, but decided against it, as there is so much white in this room. So I ended up using the clear glaze on the entire piece.
