The Classic Beauty of Silver and Blue

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… german glass glitter knobsSorry, this is not the best before picture, but hey, you get it the picture… it was U-G-L-Y. old 80s dresserTo 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.old dresser being recreated with paint and new knobsI 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.Country Chic paint Natural Wax and Silver Bullet metallic creammixing wax and metallic cremeTo 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. Country Chic Metallic Cream in Silver Bullet over Icicle coloured paintTo 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. a recreated dresser from the 80sa painted dresser using Country Chic Paint in Iciclewhite tulips and silver trays on a blue painted dressera gorgeous bird picture of blues and pinks on top of a vintage dresserdresser painted with Country Chic Paint in IcicleI 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…

    WOW Lisa! I love this! How did you do the knobs like that? It’s so unique! I have been trying the country chic products as well and am becoming quite fond of it. I’m going to try some of your waxing technique on my next project. Thank you for the inspiration! I hope you have a great day!
