Empire Dresser Makeover in Milk Paint



I couldn't be any happier with this makeover! I scored this empire dresser for $30 believe it or not! The veneer is cracking and peeling in places but that didn't scare me.
I always let a piece sit in my home unfinished for a little while until it talks to me. I knew I was going to use Miss Mustard Seeds milk paint but I wasn't sure of the color.

I finally decided on Mora, it's a perfect soft gray with a blue undertone. This was my first time using milk paint and I would say the only thing that I noticed is that with each layer of paint I put on you could see the color difference. I "touched up" a few spots and you could see the new layer of paint, so I would have to go over the entire area to make it even in color.

I love the paint and the finish it leaves though....& that amazing chipping!!!

I decided to leave the cracks in the veneer....I felt like it added character to the piece. I didn't want it to be "perfect." I left the original hardware and just changed two knobs to add a little touch of "new."
