My 12 year old daughter started middle school this year, she is growing up fast! She requested a few changes to her room so I’m in the process of updating a few decorative accents like her curtains and bedding.
The main switcheroo was replacing her old dresser, and since I adore campaign furniture I thought Ave Home’s Harper Campaign Dresser was the perfect piece for the update. My girl loves turquoise blue so that was the color I painted it for her, it’s a stylish new look for one corner of her room.
The piece arrived in white, lovely as is but my girl wanted some color and Chalk Paint is a quick way to make it so.
This was truly one of the easiest makeovers because there was no need to prime the dresser, I simply removed the hardware and layered on a few coats of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in the color ‘Provence’.
Since the piece is flat on all sides, I only needed to roll on three thin coats of paint with a foam roller, I allowed each to dry for a few hours in between and it was done in one day! To protect it, all it needed was a coat of clear wax, I applied it with a clean cotton rag.
After the wax, all I had to do was reattach the hardware, I so love this color with the brass campaign hardware.
Thanks so much to Ave Raw for sending this dresser my way, it’s absolutely perfect, and such high quality too. My daughter will love this piece for years to come.
