In honor of Memorial Day, we’re sharing this patriotic dresser done by stockists Cindy + Barry Gazso of Studio 184 in Stoughton, Wisconsin.
Barry painted the base base in Paris Grey Chalk Paint®. The hand-drawn flag was painted using Emperor’s Silk, Primer Red, Napoleonic Blue, Greek Blue + Pure White, and ultimately finished with Annie Sloan Clear Soft Wax.
The UNFOLDED team wishes you a safe + fun Memorial Day weekend!
Is artistic talent genetic? This boho elegant dresser painted by Linda Reynolds, mum to stockist Christy Grooten of Paint Me Shabby Designs in Midland, Western Australia, says yes.
Linda received the dresser from a dear friend who unexpectedly + suddenly passed away. Although she spent years hesitant to touch it, Linda knew her friend would want her to rejuvenate the piece, which was previously painted black.
“There could be no other paint type or color but Chalk Paint® in Florence,” says Linda. “It just has a sense of boho elegance.”
Linda describes the process of choosing the color and painting as no fuss, easy + flowing. After painting, she distressed the dresser to her liking and used Annie Sloan Clear Soft Wax to complete the beautiful finish.
