Wood purists avert your eyes because this dresser makeover using color stain is coming at you. I had the chance to try Deco Art Americana Decor color stain and I thought what better place to add some color than my girls bedroom. So I took the 16 drawer dresser I just built and used the color stain in kelly green, it’s fun and bright and one of a kind.
Before it was unfinished pine and birch plywood just waiting for a finish.
And now it’s kelly green but you can still see a little bit of the wood grain peeking through the stain. The stain is semi-transparent so tons of color but the wood will still be visible:
The color stain is very easy to work with and much more controllable than a regular stain. It’s thick but still workable and has great coverage even with one coat.
I did go back over in some spots with another coat just to even things up a bit. Also the stain is self sealing so there’s no need for a top coat.
Below you can truly see the difference in the before and after:
An easy way to add tons of color and character to any wood piece while not having to worry about brush strokes and dripping paint. I definitely recommend trying Deco Art Americana Decor color stain, it’s available in 21 colors at select JoAnn Fabric stores and good for indoor and outdoor use.
