Into the moon:

When we registered for the Winter 2021 edition of the Contest Wave, we were delighted to learn that the theme was into the moon.

The inspiration was the monochrome range of colors, moon, galaxy, and sparkles!

We took the opportunity to invite Laurie, La bordel de mère.

It was a great pleasure to work alongside Laurie on such a creative project. Moreover, we are glad to teach her more about Colorantic and its ease of use.

We will now present our achievements and the stages through which this piece of furniture went.

We used the following products to create the masterpiece worthy of the theme into the moon.


Given is the detailed tutorial to guide you on the product we created for the Winter 2021 edition of the Contest Wave. 

Following steps were performed to add the vibe of the theme into the moon.

Step 1: Clean and Prepare the Dresser

For the preparation of the dresser, we applied the Colorantic cleaner and varnish remover.
We will have to wait about twenty minutes for optimal cleaning.

In addition, we will even remove the old protective layer of the furniture we had chosen.
When it’s no longer sticky, it’s ready. 

The next step is to wipe our furniture nicely with a damp cloth.
The last preparation step is good sanding, to scratch our furniture well. 

Lastly, do not forget to wipe the furniture well afterward to remove all residues.

Step 2 – Applying the chalk-based paint:

This specific piece of furniture never had oil products on it.
So we were able to go directly to the painting stage. 

However, we recommend that you always use a primer to prepare your furniture.

If you are not aware of what type of product has is used on your furniture, you can use an oil primer.
You can also take the following test to determine whether to use a water-based primer or oil-based primer. 

Take some makeup remover pads and a nail polish remover.

– If you rub on the furniture and there is residue, it means it was a water-based finish. You can use either of our primers.

– If there is no residue, it was an oil finish. You will need to use an oil primer.

We put two coats of the color Night (chalk-based paint by colorantic) all over the dresser.
We then applied the metallic sparkle color to the old handles and the wood details at the top of the cabinet.

To make a contrast of the night and sparkle color, all bringing out the magnificent relief of this piece of furniture.
We painted on the relief with metallic sparkle and using a damp cloth. 

Lastly, We removed the excess paint to leave only in the background of the relief.

Step 3 – Make the glitter galaxy:

To make the galaxy with our glitter, we put glaze only on the area where we applied the glitter.

Using the dry # 10 brush, we blotted glitter and shook its bristles.
Our glitter stuck randomly on our still wet glaze.

To create our galaxy effect, put more at (2) specific points, and the rest spread out more smoothly.

We removed the excess glitter and then applied the glaze to the entire cabinet as a topcoat.


This project is simple to execute for an apprentice dresser like “La bordel de mère.”

A little patience, some arm juice ’, some great advice from the Colorantic team, and we have a complete dresser makeover!

All the products used for this achievement will be -10% off on our Colorantic website from November 17 to 21, 2021.

Thanks to Laurie Dubois alias La bordel de mère for our wonderful collaboration.
