Coral French Provincial

You know I typically stick to my blue and gray paint. They sell faster than fun colors but start to bore me after a while. So, I decided to step out of the box on this dingy French Provincial Chest I found on CL.

She was sanded and primed first. I used my Homeright Sprayer which I'm totally loving! The color is Wild Watermelon by Behr. The pulls were sprayed glossy white. A thin application of Fiddes and Sons wax and she has a new life.

 The routered areas were done using a round artists brush. I find it easiest to get a clean line when the paint is mixed with water to an ink like consistency.
 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Your dresser would fit right into our bedroom. I painted a little end table to be a night stand. It was a dark stain before, just didn't fit in our room. Anyway I mixed up some acrylic paints to make the coral I wanted and mixed up some other acrylics to make an aqua for some of the details on the table. The table turned out so pretty and would go with your coral dresser, has lots of storage. Wish I could buy it but maybe I'll repaint our waterfall chif-a-robe a pretty coral color with aqua for the little trim pieces. You have inspired me with your gorgeous dresser. Happy weekend
