White Painted Furniture by Jolie Home

Pure White Paint by Jolie does the trick on these quick furniture flips 

So usually I'm using the Noir or Graphite by Jolie Home to paint my furniture.  I felt like changing things up and decided on the Pure White.  I recently acquired a dresser and similar set of night stands I had to get painted.  I lightly sanded all three pieces since they were just a bit slick. Unfortunately they all needed 4 coats of the pure white paint. You just never know with the whites.  Usually the whites need a couple extra coats to cover well. I find this with all white paints. The good thing is, that paint dries quickly, so it doesn't slow you down.

After they were painted they were then sealed for protection. I used  clear wax on the dresser and Jolie varnish on the nightstands. I LOVE the Jolie varnish! 

The dresser's drawer pulls were a bit outdated looking, so they got an update with a bit of gold gilding. They turned out great and now look much less dated. Have you used gold gilding before on your paint projects?

Have a peek at the pieces below.

Quick furniture transformation on this dated vintage dresser using Pure White Paint by Jolie

Gold gilding did the trick on these old drawer pulls.   

It's not easy to find a nice set of matching nightstands to flip. So happy with these.
