Bohemian Painted Dresser

Last month I painted a dresser with bohemian vibe by giving it a very artistic paint job.  What was once a regular, traditional style dresser is now a work of art with loads of storage.  The dresser came with a huge mirror that I debated whether or not to paint it to match.  I'm so glad I went for it because the mirror really made the piece.  See for yourself!

I love painting like this because I can have complete, creative freedom.  The base color is a deep teal chalk paint and a blended in lighter turquoise, I then layered on the accent green colors.  Distressed it and gave it multiple coats of poly, sanding between coats as always for a super soft smoothness.

This dresser is super solid, with 9 dovetailed drawers and it was made by Heywood Wakefield.  The original hardware looks so amazing up against the deep color, and the mirror makes a huge statement.  I love the outcome of this piece.
