Mossy Green Dresser Re-do

HI friends! First of all I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who entered the $1,000 dollar giveaway on the blog, the winner was picked today & announced on the facebook page {here}. INo worries if you didn’t win, there are lots of lovely giveaways coming your way soon. So, many of you may have seen this lovely mossy green dresser in our master bedroom reveal {here}, but now I want to show you the before & the after & the in betweens of how I re-did it. Let’s start with the “before”….

There was lots of damage to this little baby, but nothing that some paint and tlc couldn’t fix. ps. I took this photo via instagram, if you don’t follow me, I’m mad at you 😉 You can follow me {here} I love chatting on there, so let’s be friends!

Can we talk about how much I love the gold hardware on this baby? Here is how I achieved the gold hardware…

That’s right, my trusty rub n’ Buff that I got from Michaels. As you can see by the tube I have used it a lot & I’m obsessed. If you haven’t used Rub n’ Buff it’s really simple, you literally rub & buff. You can get this product in many colors like teal, silver, and some others, but by far my favorite is this grecian gold. To make the hardware Gold I simply applied the product with my fingers {it gets messy, but it’s the best way I have found to do it} I rub it all over the surface with my fingers & then I buff it off with a rag. The product has a smooth and durable finish with very little drying time. It’s pretty much amazing.

The color of the dresser is a funny story. I was instantly drawn to this green by Valspar called Valencia Moss. After getting the paint color home I realized it was eerily similar to our guest bathroom, & sure enough it was the same color. I guess I really love it. It’s for sure one of my favorite colors by Valspar & I for sure recommend this green for any of your projects. After distressing the dresser with a sanding block I used Annie Sloan’s dark wax to seal it.

I think this dresser adds the perfect eclectic touch of rustic cabin feel to our master bedroom & I couldn’t be happier with how this piece turned out. What do you think of my mossy green dresser? Are you a fan? Have you used this color before? Are you a Rub N’ Buff user? What have you used it on? I would love to see your projects, link them below or share them on the facebook page {here} or tag me on Twitter or Instagram.

Talk to you soon

    This is exactly what I want to do with my daughter’s dresser!! But some questions: did you sand the dresser before you painted? Did you have to do anything with those purple knobs before you put on the Rub N’ Buff? I have never heard of that stuff before. Our dresser is super old and the paint is beginning to chip, do I have to sand the whole thing down first? It looks beautiful and I would love to recreate this look!
