Fusion colour, Chestler is one of the new (late 2022) range of deep, moody colours, and I was excited to use it along with Winchester (deep red) to add a fun new look to this pretty boring old orange pine set of bedside drawers.

Have you Painted Furniture yet?

I don’t want to assume that everyone who visits my blog has painted furniture, as I am sure some of you may be new to DIY, or maybe you’ve painted a little, but are looking for more guidance.

If that’s you, when you’re finished watching this tutorial, check out my LEARN TO PAINT page, where I keep all my best links to tutorials or helpful videos that people often ask me about. You’ll learn everything from how to prep your piece, what’s the best sander to use for your project, how to paint, the difference between paint types and more.

Supply List for this project:

If you’d like to replicate this makeover, here’s what you’ll need:

  • small set of drawers, bedside table or similar
  • sandpaper (approx 120-240 grit) or Sandi Hands glove
  • cloth to wipe down
  • paint brush (in this video I use a Cling On S30)
  • Argyle Pattern Stencil from Essential Stencil (use code IRESTORESTUFF for 10% off site wide)
  • Fusion Colour – Chestler (500ml pot will be plenty for this size – in fact, you could paint 3 or 4 of these sets with one pot) If in USA/Canada, you can find Fusion HERE.
  • Fusion Mineral Paint – Winchester (Tester size – 37ml is all that is needed for the stenciling part) If in USA/Canada, you can find Fusion HERE.
  • Fusion Metallic – Antique Gold (Tester size – 37ml) If in USA/Canada, you can find Fusion HERE.
  • Fusion Antiquing Glaze for sides of drawers & inside (can use any glaze for this or an antique wax or sealer eg. Artisan Easy Wax)
  • Optional: sealer such as Artisan Flat matte or Gloss sealer, or Fusion Tough Coat Wipe on Poly.

It is a little hard to see the metallic shimmer of the Antique Gold using on the “thread” that criss-crosses over the diamonds in this argyle pattern, but it is noticeable in person.
