I was originally going to go for a charcoal and white combination for this french dresser, but I am really feeling colour at the moment and so I decided to go with this emerald/mint combination. The body is Annie Sloan Florence and the drawer fronts are a custom mix.
I did some light distressing to age the piece. I also painted some white underneath the mint colour on the drawers to provide a romantic layered look to the finish.
I gave the original pulls a small blast of gold spray paint because I love the way emerald and gold go together.
This colour scheme gave me the perfect excuse to use this vintage wallpaper I found at an op-shop. It was from Eaton's and the original sticker price was $2.99 for the roll. Bargain.
I usually wax the top of my pieces, but I decided to try a poly this time. I sanded back and then put a coat of wax on top of the poly. The result is a soft sheen, and is very durable!
