Are you feeling sluggish? Does your blood sugar need spiking? I gots what you need. It’s a dresser makeover from Christina, and it’s like an energizing glass of orange juice for the eyes! Woo!
Her client delivered this dresser to her with instructions to jazz it up using Benjamin Moore’s Orange Burst. However, that color couldn’t be mixed in the acrylic latex enamel formula she wanted, so she went with an oil-based paint instead. The good news: it looks awesome. So smooth and slick, like it rolled right out of the factory looking that way. The bad news: that paint took FOREVER to dry. Sixteen hours in between coats, and it took SIX coats!! Woah. That is cray to the zay. It also needs 60 days to fully cure. Woah again.
Worth it? Christina says no way. Time is money. But if you’re interested in a flawless finish, and you’ve got hours and hours and HOURS and days and weeks and months to spare, it might be right up your alley! More info on her blog at Phoenix Restoration.
