Are you a lover of shabby chic dressers, white distressed painted furniture? From slightly distressed to super chippy? There’s a romantic feeling that comes with shabby chic makeovers, especially when they start off so dark and brown and transform into a much lighter color. Even when distressed, a white painted finish often has a crispness to it. Plus, it doesn’t necessarily have to be white, most are, but even pastels can work for that romantic feel that comes with shabby chic furniture.  A clean, white, shabby chic painted finish with distressing always evokes a little emotion.

    Thank you so much…wonderful timing. I just finished the first coat of white paint on a dresser. I still hadn’t decided on a finished look and this post really helps!

  2. What a great round up. Thanks for including my white distressed dresser Kandice!

    I have a question about the matte clear finish i read that you used on an image transfer that you did. It was an older article so i wasn’t sure where to ask. I forget the brand..Kristi something I think. Anyway i have had trouble finding a true matte. Everyone that i have tried has a slight shine. I want a good sealant with zero shine. So does this brand have a true matte/ dull finish? Also is there any issues with yellowing on white paint? Thanks in advance.

    1. hi Cindy, I find the matte to be rather matte and pretty much no sheen to it. I also find that as long as the sealer is applied in thin coats there isnt any yellowing. (its krist kuehl pure home paint that I use.. on my website )

  4. Love this! 🙂 Just love how a little paint can really bring a piece like this to life!

    I’d like to invite you to share this at the Farmhouse Friday link party, which is live right now! 🙂 When you link up, I will share it with a direct link back to your post on all my social media, including on the DIY Farmhouse Style Facebook group, which at this writing has 154k+ members. I hope to see you there! 🙂
