Dresser Update

A while back I saw a dresser that had been painted a metallic silver and then glazed. It was a new piece of furniture made in a vintage style; and it was pricey. I had a similar actual vintage dresser so I thought I give that paint technique a try. I am pleased with how it turned out and I thought you all might like a look.
Here's the dresser before, well of couse I forgot to take a picture with the drawers in. I get overly excited to get started and I forget
Here's what the dresser looks like after painting and glazing. I'm pretty happy with it.
Here's an up-close shot.
I tried a product that was new to me for this redo. The dresser was already in an upstairs bedroom and I didn't want to move it outside to spray paint it so I wanted a brush on metallic paint. After much looking, I finally found one made by Rustoleum. It works very well and I have a lot left so I'm sure I'll be painting other items with this color. Well, thanks for taking a look.


  1. How pretty! I love the subtle metallic finish. :)

    1. Thanks Mrs. Handyverger -- I know the metallic isn't a style that everybody likes but I was pleased with it. I appreciate your supportive comment.

  2. Love the look of this! I just painted a chair with a similar colour... I'm still lokking for the fabric for the seat, though.
