Before & After Chest of Drawers

I was inspired by the Canadian House & Home article that I featured on this post to update my husband's tired chest of drawers. It took a while to decide on the paint color and hardware but I'm pleased with the result.

I lightly sanded it and used Benjamin Moore's Regal Select Premium Interior Paint that is self-priming in Abington Putty. My wonderful painter, Bill, gave me a demonstration on how to paint furniture and suggested using a Purdy paint brush, which made a big difference. It took about three coats and then I sealed it with two coats of Wipe on Poly, a great product recommended by Ginny from Little Green Notebook.

The Adeline Knobs are from Restoration Hardware in the Antique Brass finish. Need a little paint color inspiration? Check out Benjamin Moore's website for a preview of House Beautiful's "Bookazine" on Designer's favorite paint picks!
