Painting An Antique French Provincial Dressers In Two Charming Colors

Liven Up An Old Dresser  

 Pretty combination of blue and lilac paint. 
Look how attractive this older French Provincial style dresser looks when painted a combination of light blue and lilac. It's simply delicious. It certainly caught my eye when I was out browsing my local Antique mall.

Painting A Dresser In Two Colors

If you are a dealer having a harder time "moving" furniture or a buyer wanting to liven up  a room in your home, consider painting your piece(s) in two compatible colors. As you can see there is also extra finishing touches done to this dresser. Local paint stores can show you the materials to add accents as well.
