Pale Tiffany Blue Antique Chest

Antique blue dresser

I took a break from working on the house to refinish this cute antique dresser.  I jotted down the paint formula from a blog and I wish I could remember where! It is like a robin’s egg blue but reminds me of a pale blue Tiffany box. I just love it.  Definitely not as gray-blue as it shows in my lighting.

Here is what it looked like when I found it. The veneer on the top was missing so I had to fill and paint rather than refinish it. I love the end result without the refinished top after all.

After the makeover. So darling in person!

It had all the original hardware. I just gave it a spritz of satin nickel to bling it up, and lightly distressed the edges. What a great piece for a nursery, a girl’ room or a shabby chic guest room.

For AZ locals, shoot me an email if you are interested.

Today I spent the ENTIRE day in my shop sanding and prepping our homemade farmhouse table. It’ll take me a few days to finish it but I’m excited about the possible end result. I sure hope it turns out…I need it done by Thanksgiving!

  1. I’ve bought the same paint and stain for the turquoise table, but it wasn’t easy because I am not one to go along with, and I debated and debated whether to buy the same paint as you used, but finally I decided to go for your style and see and after that I will know to trust your colors because I love what you’ve posted and am hoping the pics and paint are very similiar. (And I don’t trust my color choices anyway!) We shall see pretty soon! Mercy me !!! I love painting furniture! And I hope this style stays forever but then, those of us who must paint won’t care in the end will we, lol….
    Thanks for sharing and I’m hoping to get the ebook, it’s just that I’m older and hesitant to do anything over the web like buying a book! I know, but you’ll be old someday and hesitate to take similar steps too… But then again, you probably won’t, because look at what you do now!
