Indian Inlay Stenciled Dresser

  Are you a stencil fan? I used part of the pretty  Indian inlay   stencil  from  Cutting Edge Stencils   and warm white paint to give this little wooden dresser some pizzaz. The cut glass knobs added glam!

Fusion's brushed steel nightstand


This super sleek tall nightstand called out for Fusion Mineral metallic paint in brushed steel. I saw a dresser done last year and loved it and just had to try it. Recently, Jennylyn, the creator of Fusion Mineral paint did a video on kitchen cabinets using it which was my inspiration for this project.




Just to be sure this orangy cherry color does not bleed thru I put on a grey tinted coat of primer. Fusion has a product called concealer I hope to try in the future that does this same job.

I brushed on two coats of the brushed steel metallic paint allowing to dry well between coats then did the glaze mixed with Fusion ash color.

Then as per Jennylyn's advice I sealed it all up with Fusion Mineral paint's tough coat which indeed deepened the steel look and will give the nightstand added durability. I scrubbed up the original hardware and put back on. It compliments the brushed steel and allows the nightstand to be either masculine or feminine.


the top narrow molding is the painted drawer, cute right? I think it is a great place for a diary ;)


I painted the top drawer a lighter grey


perfect not only in a bedroom but at a front door, end of a hall or in a living room used as an end table, so many uses for this reloved piece.

  4. Beautiful job! So many new paints I have no idea how to use. Or glazes. Your nightstand looks so high end.

  6. When you applied the ash tinted glaze did you brush on then wipe off or did you dry brush it?

  7. Fusion Mineral recommend not to use the Tough Coat on mid tones and darker colours because it can leave milky streaks - did you have any issues with this? Also did you use the Clear glaze with the Ash (rather than the Antique)/

      yes I used the clear glaze with the ash and the tough coat worked perfectly seeing it was metallic I think

      I always lightly sponge sand between paint coats and clear coats for a super smooth finish :)
