Annie Sloan Primer Red Dresser

Annie Sloan’s Primer Red is a new color for me. I’m so glad that Lisa decided on it for her childhood dresser. This dresser was used by Lisa’s Aunt, then by Lisa, and then sat in her basement unused for years until she recently found the perfect spot for it in her entryway. Here it is before and as I started working on it.


It took three coats of Annie Sloan Primer Red, one coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax and one coat of Dark Wax to highlight the details a little. I spray painted the previously brassy handles with Rustoleum Old Bronze. PrimerRedDresser1 PrimerRedDresser4 PrimerRedDresser5

Now this cherished piece will be used every day to store daily essentials and serve as a great conversation piece as friends and family enter Lisa’s house!

Lisa… thank you for trusting me with your vintage dresser! And it was so nice to reconnect with you!

… Kristin
