Ombre Dresser Project




So I'm sure just about everyone saw THIS pin on Pinterest.

But the SECOND I saw it I hopped on my local classified ads website and looked for that dresser. I got super lucky and found one almost exactly like the one from Pinterest.

Here's the distorted blobby picture from the website.

I went to Sherwin Williams and picked a color sample and it had all the gradients on the sample. So I just said "I want all 6 of these colors in your sample sizes" 

I used a latex spray primer from Sherwin Williams because I was told that the old stain might bleed through if I used a water based primer.

I put the dresser in my guest bedroom down in the basement.

This is my bed from when I was a kid. I got new bedding and I think it looks so inviting!

My family's vintage pillowcases.
(excuse the poor lighting in these photos, it is in a basement that they were taken.)

Very pretty! What a great idea to get all the colors on one paint sample- then you know they'll coordinate! I'll definitely keep that in mind

Love the color choice for your dresser. Since I first seen the pin of the other dresser a while back, I've been wanting to paint one too. Still looking for just the right dresser to do the technique on. Yours turned out Beautiful!!
