A Bold Blue Whimsical Dresser Makeover | ORC | Week II

Hi friends! Welcome back to the second week of the One Room Challenge.
I was certainly hoping I would have more done, heck I was hoping I would at least have the dresser done, but man it's just hard getting anything accomplished with a toddler!

So let's not dwell on what I didn't get done... 
let's discuss what I did...

So I got our dresser painted,
 and man is it blue!
I used Behr Chalk paint from the Home Depot.
I had never used this brand before but I thought I would give it a whirl.
I must say I do really like this chalk paint, it goes on with good coverage and 
it dries to a chalky velvety smooth finish.
It's a really good price point and that's the main reason I used it for this challenge.
I still need to finish up some of the details and then wax the entire piece.
The edges will get a gold wax to bring out the details.

I was really questioning this color choice while I was painting it, 
I documented the whole process in my stories on IG,

It went on so incredibly, electrically...blue
I was really not loving it at first...
But now, I'm so pumped I did it, 
it's bold
 it's daring 
and it's unexpected

I literally expect it to come alive and start singing at any moment, 
it looks so whimsical and animated:)
I think once I wax it, it will be even more amazing.
After I get this one done, I will be moving on the bed and the night stands 
and then.....
If you didn't see my wallpaper reveal on my stories,
head to my IG and look under my highlight ORC Bedroom!
It's a good one!
Well I will be seeing you next week, I will be painting away!

  2. Hi Summer,

    So nice to see your post, I agree this color is bold but you have executed it beautifully and with the gold and wax I think it will be just lovely. Can't wait for the reveal hahaha

    All of you keep safe and happy! Hugs, Colleen
