refinishing furniture in grey

As much as I love to do punchy colours on dressers and tables, I always love coming back to classic neutrals.  My family likes to bug me because my house is tones of white and grey with blues mixed in here and there.  I don't stray from that colour palette. Me? Neutral? Shocking!  While they might think neutrals are boring, they are anything but! When I picked up this dresser, I knew that it's classic lines needed a classic colour.  Here is the photo from the online listing:


Potential! I chose one of my absolute favourite greys that has rich depth and varying tones - Cobblestone from Country Chic Paint.  It's a warmer shade that has earthy undertones.


After I filled in some deeper scratches with wood filler and sanded them smooth, I gave the dresser a good cleaning and light sanding.  Then I painted the entire dresser with two coats of Cobblestone, letting each coat dry completely.


I lightly distressed the entire piece and then added my favourite topcoat over Cobblestone: antique wax.  I love the way the dark wax adds a richness and depth to Cobblestone.


Dressers are the main thing that I look for when I am looking for furniture to stock and refinish.  I love them in all shades, but I really love the classic look of a dresser in a stunning neutral!
