I never dreamed that finding and making over a $50 dollar dresser with a bit of paint would end up being one of my all time favorite projects. My favorite Boxwood green dresser has become a staple not only in our home, but here on the blog, Facebook, Instagram and even Pinterest! I often get asked questions about her so I figured I would answer a few of those here as well as share how I have decorated her through the seasons.

My Favorite Boxwood Dresser-Before
I found this beauty on Facebook Marketplace but she sure wasn’t as pretty as she is now. In the picture below you can see what she used to look like. She was in bad shape but had good bones! My way of saying she had potential! I always look for “good bones” when searching for a project piece. 🙂
The Boxwood Green Dresser-Questions Answered
Here is a peek at the dresser after I painted her with the color Boxwood Green by Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. (The paint color is my number one asked question!) The good news is that you can buy this amazing paint at several on-line retailers including Amazon! The second most asked question is about where I found her knobs. I found these white ridged knobs at Hobby Lobby. They look like vintage milk glass and I love how they pop against the green! Finally, people are always curious if using milk paint is hard. Honestly it’s not hard at all and it is rather forgiving for the most part. But I will say, milk paint can be very unpredictable so you have to be OK with it not looking absolutely uniform.
This blog post, Everything You Need To Know When Using Milk Paint, shares the entire transformation process from beginning to end with this fun dresser! It also answers so many questions like… what I sealed it with after painting it. So if you are still wondering anything about this Boxwood beauty I suggest you click on the green link above!

Creating a Statement Piece
My favorite Boxwood green dresser has become what I like to call a statement piece in our home. The moody green color acts as both a neutral and pop color. Not many colors can do that and that is precisely why I fell in love with this gorgeous Boxwood paint and color by Miss Mustard Seed milk paint. Thanks for letting me show her off a bit more. Like I said above let me know if you have any questions!
