Ten Projects, Day Seven – A Painted Ombre Yellow Dresser, Absolutely Citron

This project is a dresser, transformed, with six colors of American Paint Company   Uncle Sam, Navajo White, Heaven’s Light, Parchment, Amber Waves of  Grain, and A-maizing yellow ,   and Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat in Wisteria, for the top.

Paint, paint, blend

paint, blend, blend

paint, blend, paint, blend…

until just right.

At this point I contemplated leaving the piece as is,  or adding a stencil. As much as I  ❤  ❤  stencils,   if I don’t like them after I apply them, it will bug me to the point where I’ll repaint over them.      Thus, if I made the wrong choice on this one, it would be a major butt whooping to repaint it again…

I could SEE the stencil in my mind,  and knew I needed to apply it.  I used APC’s  Uncle Sam to stencil the design.   The stencil is an old one from my wall business collection,  and no longer available as the company went out of business.   It’s a thinner stencil,  and that makes the stenciling more cumbersome, especially since it’s worn from past use.  But the design was perfect for this piece, and worth the slowing down.

I gold leafed the front legs, and painted the top with a blend of APC Navajo White and Heaven’s Light,  a pretty pale creamy yellow.   And sanded the finish until I liked it.

I sealed the base with a mix of APC Vintage Clear Wax and Clear mixed with Gold Mica.  You can see in the picture below that the closer half has just been waxed – (the black dot is from my camera lens 😦  )

When the piece was dry I didn’t like the top – I liked the idea of light against the ombre yellow, but it was too creamy, instead I wanted it to be a cleaner white.

I added a couple layers of Caromal Colours Textured bascoat Wisteria, and lightly sanded.  I sealed it with Caromal’s new Countertop and Cabinet Sealer. When that dried I buffed it with a soft cloth dipped in Clear Wax-

I painted all the hardware,  sanded/wet wiped,  and sealed
