Bohemian Dresser

This dresser is the HEAVIEST dresser I’ve ever painted! I think it weighs 300lbs. Luckily, I have a very strong πŸ’ͺ🏻 son who can move pieces like this β™₯️. He’s never allowed to move out. EVER!
Do you remember the elephant 🐘 dresser I painted πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨ a couple weeks ago? I’ll put the photo below for you! Well, the wonderful woman who bought it asked if I had a larger dresser to go with it. I offered to paint this beast to match and I’m so glad I did!
I painted this piece as a live tutorial in my private coaching group. My best pieces have been coming from these tutorials! My group opens once every Fall & Spring. Our next open date will be in April. You can get on the waitlist here:

For the Paint 🎨 Details…..
I used these products and colors!
This kind of look comes from multiple layers. I pretty much just add layers of paint and colors until my heart β™₯️ is happy😊!! The Sea Spray and mud are used to create a texture to β€œCatch”the colors on. I used a wash of paint, vinegar, and water πŸ’¦ several different times. You can also see in the right corner I faded in the Tropical 🏝 Leaves transfer!!
Then at the end my flat round β€œBest Dang Wax” brush helped me to create the shading that pulled this look together. I sealed the body with Clear Coat in Satin and then the top with Gator 🐊 Hide! After she was sealed I applied the Gold Gilding wax for the finishing touch!
My favorite products I used for this project are the β€œBest Dang Wax” brush and the Sea 🌊 Spray! Those 2 things really made this look!!
What do you think?? Is the bohemian vibe ✌🏻 your style??
