This dresser is looking so great in its new blue milk paint color. I loved that it had antique charm and style while having clean lines, so it’s not too girly. I chose this color because I love blue, but it’s a brighter color and not as toned down and neutral as I usually go.
Somehow I scored it at goodwill (I never seem to find anything good at thrift stores anymore) and you can check out the before on Instagram or in the Before & After section. I loved that is had that old, bumpy-crackly finish (if you’ve worked with old furniture you probably know what I’m talking about) and I wanted to keep that texture so I just gave it a light sanding and sealed it with Shellac to prevent any bleed through. I used 3 coats of paint and love that random variation this particular color gives. I’ve used it before on the Layered Blue Dresser and a small table, and each time the color slightly varies – it’s awesome! It’s sealed with 1 good coat of GF high performance poly and then a coat of clear wax and to finish it off I added these light blue, scalloped knobs. It’s such a sweet little dresser!
