Greek Dresser and Ugly Duckling

Welcome Paint Lovers…

Kelly @ Jax Does Design submitted her updated IKEA dresser.

PoP Jax Does Design

She took an Ikea RAST dresser and added some Greek key O’verlays and created a faux zinc on the drawers. She applied the Greek key O’verlays to the drawer fronts using Krazy Glue. Then she primed the drawers with Zinnser Bin primer and then painted them with Tremclad flat paint in black. Then she applied Rub N Buff in pewter with a cloth and rubbed it onto the drawer fronts. To give the “zinc” a softer look, she used a pouncer brush to apply DecorArt Elegant Finish Metallic Paint in Shimmering Silver on top of the Rub N Buff. A gorgeous transformation!


Daena @ Bad Rabbit Vintage submitted her Ugly Duckling Cabinet.

She started with an ugly duckling cabinet that use to be part of a vanity. She used plain old craft paint – the kind in the 3 oz. bottles for this project in black and metallic bronze.  A fun, whimsical makeover!

    Thanks so much for featuring my RAST makeover :-) It was a fun project, and relatively easy to do. The faux zinc finish is really addictive! The best thing about it is that you really can’t go wrong – just keep playing around with it till it looks how you want it to look :-)

    Thank you for sharing my little ugly cabinet! I love how it turned out and just have to say that the “old” ways are still the right choice for some projects. Just whisper an “I’m sorry” to the ASCP as you reach past it for those little craft paint bottles. :-) They can still do magic!
