Fusion Nursery edition ~ teapot
Fusion Mineral paint has a new line of nursery colors and they are spectacular!! Of course I was drawn immediately to teapot with its green blue hue. I knew the perfect piece to try it on, sized for a wee one.
any nursery for either boy or girl. To deepen the color to its fullest I applied 3 coats leaving dry time between. Fusion paint dries fast allowing a shorter time to complete a project but it also requires fast work and no OCD dillydallying! I learned it is far easier to touch up after dry then try and smooth while semi wet ;) I also chose to lightly sand with a fine grit sponge between coats just to keep smooth as possible.
The original hardware was so unique I had to keep the handles. I did not care for the small close to the surface set knobs so in the end changed them to new crystal glass knobs and updated the old gold to satin nickel for the handles.
To continue adding some unique details, I gave the top, edges and legs a nice rub of silver crème for the lightest shimmer
And on the back, I added one of Fusion's adorable stencils in this new series. Dream Big little one is one of my favorite sayings and it did not fail to add even more char to this sweet little dresser.
There is one last super adorable feature I have not seen in any other dresser, curved bottom drawers. I just love this charming little jewel.
love the new crystal glass knobs
