french provincial dresser in classic white

It's no secret that I love refinishing French Provincial furniture.  Oddly enough, it's not my style for my own home, but it just looks so dang good painted! French Provincial furniture wears colour so well, but it also looks so classic and stately in neutrals - especially white!


This piece had sat in my shop a little while, and clearly was subject to a bit of overspray! Whoops!

To clean this piece up it got a good wipe down with Krud Kutter and then a light sanding to prep the surface for paint.  Never, ever skip prep steps!

I sprayed this piece with a white I absolutely love - Crinoline by Country Chic Paint.  It's a slightly off white with a warm undertone.  I find myself grabbing it off my shelf time and again because it's such a beautiful shade of white.  The piece got two solid coats and then a light third coat in areas that needed it.



I finished this piece off by lightly distressing to show off it's beautiful lines and then sealing with clear wax.


I'm so tempted to keep this piece, but where oh where would I put it....

  1. I like the transformation of this amazing piece of furniture. A month ago, I was also thinking to do some DIY on my office drawer. But came across a few office drawers which were affordable, eye-catchy and was enough space in them. Then I thought that I should buy a new drawer as its price was equal to the products which I was going to use in DIY. Anyways, thank you for this awesome blog. I am definitely gonna share your blog with my friends who are thinking to do DIY on their piece of furniture.
