Fusion's new color putty
Time to try another of Fusion Mineral paints latest color releases, this time I chose putty; "a sophisticated neutral that blends beige and grey and grounds any color scheme".
The antique piece I chose to try it on seemed very fitting of this timeless color. Inside the back in pencil is hand writing saying " bought Fri. June 25, 1948 name and Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada"!
This poor antique piece I literally pulled out of the transfer dumpster. I was so sad to see it tossed in to be crushed and disposed of. The poor veneer top had some damage but I had read a post just that day as to how easy it was to remove old veneer.
I hauled it home and began its makeover. Note to self, do not believe everything you read on the internet, some veneer removal may be easy, others can take blood, lots of sweat and near tears and giving up!
then on to the fun part, painting! Fusion mineral paint goes on smooth and easy. I went with 2 coats of putty then hand painted some white numbers, painted the original hardware white then sanded it all to add a bit more character to this dresser and keep it looking antique.
The final touch was waxing the entire thing with Miss Mustard seed white wax for a bit more durability, detail and dimension.
SO there you have it, Fusion's new putty color on an antique dresser ready for years more service.
