Upcycle – Welsh Dresser

I found this dark wood dresser in a charity shop a few years ago and loved the half circle designs and pane glass windows, plus it had great storage cupboards for toys and games. It was crying out for a bold colour to upcycle this welsh dresser.

The original dresser

So I grabbed a can of peacock coloured paint that was suitable for wood and got painting. I like to see the original colour of the piece so focused on the drawers, cupboards and back of the piece while keeping the shelves original.

To pick out the details, I used a drybrush technique on the patterns to make them stand out more.

The final effect

What do you think of this colour, please comment below.
