I want to show you how can you refurbish your dresser without sanding and priming or spending a fortune on fancy & expensive DIY paint products. This makeover will cost you only $99 that also includes FREE EXPRESS delivery.
I used these 4 Lignocolor products:
🌳 375ml Old Shabby Chic self - levelling chalk based paint ( I chosed our Light Grey colour. Love it, such a beautiful off-white colour!)
🌳 Shabby-lacquer Extra matt
🌳 50mm round chalk brush
🌳 60mm flat brush
(NOTE: If you decide to paint with light colour (Light Grey, Cream, Romantik Rosa, Ice Blue..) bleed through (reddish stain on surface) can occur. The only way to stop tannins discolouring your water based paint is to apply a stain blocker first. If you don't create this barrier tannins can keep on coming through, however many coats of paint you put on! It only happens with light colours - if you chose darkish colour (Emerald, Spanisch Grau, Storm, Schwarz...) you won’t need to apply stain blocker or primer at all!
Our Lignocolor 2in1 stain blocker & primer is available in clear and white colours in 375ml and 750ml sizes
After I have removed the hardware of the dresser I followed these four steps:
1. Step One: I cleaned the surface of the dresser with sugar soap and water. One of the reasons I love using Lignocolor chalk based paint is there is very little prep work and no sanding necessary.
2. Step Two: I applied 3 coats of our 375ml Old Shabby Chic Light Grey paint with the 50mm round chalk brush to the entire dresser. I only had to wait about 10-15 minutes in between coats.
3. Step Three: I lightly sanded the surface and removed the chalk dust with a clean damp cloth .
4. Step Four: I applied two coats of our Lignocolor Extra matt Shabby-lacquer with the 60mm flat brush.
And that’s it. These products are available for purchase in a set through our online store for $99 including FREE EXPRESS shipping:
