Newburg Green is Amazing

I have become addicted to Benjamin Moore's Newburg Green it is such a fabulous color.  I purchased this dresser for $12 bucks!
 $12 - Craigslist

With the help of Ben, Ann and Desert Turquoise acrylic paint this sad dresser has come "ALIVE."


I painted the top with Graphite ASCP but it didn't go exactly as planned so I did a wash of Newburg Green over the top of the Graphite and then applied Desert Turquoise using a dry brush.

The original knobs and handles were in pretty bad shape so I splurged and bought Martha Stewart hardware at Home Depot.

My very first comment came from Kristy at Hyphen Interiors thank you so much! It was the first comment not coming from a relative or a friend ! I never thought that I would get so much satisfaction from blogging it doesn't feel or seem like work at all.  I have so many ideas swimming around in my head I look forward to fitting it all in a little at a time.

  14. Lawdy, lawdy...Newberg Green is, like, the buttercream of paint. O.K. so I ended up using a color from Sherwin Williams, but I totally love NBG...

  18. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! Wow girl, you sure can make $12 go a long way. I love it. And I agree about "Julie & Julia" - I didn't even know what a blog was until I watched that movie. Thanks for linking up to Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust, & Pixie Dust. And congrats on your success.

    Warmly, Michelle

  19. Hello! I just found your blog, thanks to Fab Rehab Creations. I saw that you painted this Newberg Green, and had to check it out. I painted my closet the same color, but it looks much greener than your dresser turned out. Is it "greener" in real life? Great projects, by the way!
