Max is a chest of drawers that my brother asked me to paint for him, Max was dusty, scratched, and outdated. Max is not a high-quality piece of furniture so keeping that in mind I just wanted to do something simple and inexpensive that would give him a fresh, updated look. Read on to find out how I transformed him using only three products!
I removed the hardware and cleaned Max up with soap and water. I lightly sanded with 220 grit paper by hand, just enough to give the paint something to adhere to. I used latex flat finish paint in Tricorn black for the body of the dresser. For the drawers, I used two coats of latex flat finish in Muslin Cloth. When that had dried overnight I used Waverly Antique wax. I painted it on and wiped it back to give it that aged appearance. When that was dry and buffed out, I used the Tricorn Black to drybrush the drawers.
The large round wooden knobs were salvaged from another project and were actually close enough in color to the drawers that all I had to do was drybrush some black on them! Easy Peasy!
I love a quick, inexpensive flip that takes a dusty outdated piece of furniture and turns it into something you really want in your home!
