The products used for this project were generously provided by Country Chic Paint but the genuine (and once in a while witty) opinions expressed are completely my own.
Remember these German glass glitter knobs that I made a little white back? (see how they were made here) Well, I finally get to show you the piece they were made for! This project was originally created for Country Chic Paint (see the first one I did for them here) using their products and I had to wait until they revealed it on their website before I could share it 🙂
Now it’s my turn to show you how it all turned out… Sorry, this is not the best before picture, but hey, you get it the picture… it was U-G-L-Y. To recreate this piece I wanted to do something light and airy that had a hint of sophistication and beauty. I love the look of blue and silver together (since that is basically the colour scheme of my house!) so wanted to do that for this piece.
I chose Country Chic’s All-in-One Decor Paint in Icicle and I can’t begin to express how beautiful this colour is! It is soft and feminine and I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for the silver knobs.I painted the dresser and the drawer with two coats of the Icicle paint and then added the knobs. Blue and silver are such a classic colour pair and they played off each other wonderfully.To add a little of the silver shimmer to the entire piece I mixed some of the Country Chic Natural Wax and the Metallic Cream in Silver Bullet and rubbed the mixture on with a soft cloth. By making a paste of the two products it added just a hint of silver shimmer without it being too overpowering on the blue. To finish piece off, I added a little Country Chic White Wax to tone down the silver wax and to highlight the drawer fronts. I have used the White Wax before and absolutely love the soft glow that it gives to pieces. It was the perfect product to finish off this airy blue dresser. I am so happy with the transformation of this piece and the classic beauty that the blue and silver bring to it. I also truly can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed working with the Country Chic products and can’t wait to show you the next project…
