Fusion Mineral Paint Dresser Makeover

You guys, I’ve been so excited to share this makeover, but I wanted to wait unlit after our busy Easter weekend. I finally got the chance to paint a piece of furniture late last week. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve sat down and painted a good furniture piece. It’s just been so hard to find the time to do this but I’m glad I did. This is my moms dresser that was actually once my great grandma’s and will probably be passed down to me long in the future. My mom has been dying to give this dresser a makeover for the longest time and we teamed up on getting this baby done. She stripped and sanded the whole dresser down the best she could and I did the painting and sealing. I’ve been dying to try some Fusion Mineral Paint and I was so excited to try it on this piece. We decided on the color Raw Silk for this project.

The first thing we did was strip the old layers of paint off as much as we could. There were A LOT of layers of paint on this thing and they needed to come off for this new paint job. I suggested she try Citristrip…

She did the stripping process 3 times for this project. Other projects may only need just 1. It all depends on the piece and the coats.

After the dresser was stripped as much as it possibly could, she’s sanded it all down with 220 grit sand paper then wiped it all down from dust. My mom was stuck with the hard part some would say, I was “stuck” with the fun part. Next up was my turn with the paint. This is what the dresser looked like right before I started prepping and painting…

Before I started painting, for the first time with Fusion Mineral Paint, I used a small wire brush to get little flakey spots left over and gave the dresser another clean wipe down with a damp rag and started painting. Here’s the wire brush I used and a close up of what I did:

For the painting process I only put about this much on my brush for every few strokes. This paint is so good, you don’t need your brush overflowed with it…

I only did 2 coats of paint on the entire dresser but the top I did 3 since that is where is is most used. I added just mild distressing to the dresser then used a wax sealer I had on hand and did 2 coats of that. To finish it all off I added the knobs and displayed it for a few photos. All finished!!!

I couldn’t be more happier with the way the dresser came out, and the same goes for my mom. I loved watching her face light up when she saw it after it was finished! And as for my first impression and review on Fusion Mineral Paint, I would honestly rate this paint a 10/10. The coverage was AMAZING, the consistency was thick and creamy (no clumps), and the color was true. You with out a doubt get what you pay for! I would absolutely buy another pint of it again and look forward to my next project with Fusion Mineral Paint. If you’ve done projects with this paint before I’d love to know all about it and what your thoughts are as well. If you have any questions come find me on my Instagram. I want to thank you for stopping by the blog today and any other time and I hope you enjoyed me sharing this project. It means so much to me! xx
