Apple Green Chest

It has been a beautiful spring week here in Tennessee.  This is my favorite season because it is full of life and color.  Everything is beginning to bloom and the grass is becoming greener by the day!  The changing season is even apparent in my color choices lately…



This piece was old and had certainly seen better days.  Nothing a little TLC and paint couldn’t fix!  I mixed some paints I had on hand to achieve a beautiful apple green finish to liven it up.  I then distressed it heavily, applied a light coat of antiquing glaze, and finished with clear wax.  Even the hardware was refreshed!

  4. Really pretty! I have a thyme green paint that would probably look like this if I add some white. I LOVE what you did with the dresser.
