Indian Inspired Antique Dresser

Indian Inspired Antique Dresser:

Hello everyone! Wow! it's been a while since I've posted. Sorry about that. I have no excuses. Anyway, I was looking around for some DIYs and I came across this amazing Indian Inspired Antique Dresser on Hometalk. I had to post it of course. It's a shame their aren't any second hand shops or antique stores here where I could possibly find a dresser like this one. If there was I wouldn't waste any time, I would gather all the materials needed to recreate this beautiful piece.If you are lucky and find an antique dresser worth a makeover, you should definitely read below or check out Furniture Alchemy for more furniture makeovers.

What you'll need:

- an antique dresser 
- different shades of turquoise chalk paint for the base
- General Finishes gel stain in "Antique Walnut"for the top
- Stencils
- golden yellow paint or chalk paint
- coral paint or chalk paint
- aqua blue paint or chalk paint
- oil rubbed bronze metallic coating
General Finishes high performance polyacrylic

How to do it:

1. Start off by stripping the top and painting the base in turquoise chalk paint. To achieve this colour, different shades of turquoise were mixed together.

2. Use the "Antique Walnut" gel stain to stain the top. This makes the wood darker and brings out the turquoise colour.

3. Stencil your chosen pattern on the wood on the sides of all the drawers. The colours used for this dresser were coral, aqua blue and golden yellow. You can, of course, choose other colours.
