Chalk Painted Dresser

See how this dresser was transformed with chalk paint.

A family member had this amazing dresser which I immediately knew could be given a second life with chalk paint:

It was pretty worn and tired, but it was SO unusual and beautiful!  About half of the finish was worn off, and there were lots of nicks and scratches.  But, I knew chalk paint would give it a new life:

I painted the dresser with Annie Sloan chalk paint and used Paris Grey and Pure White.  This is a pictures of the dresser before the wax was applied.  I used clear and dark wax, and you’ll notice in the after pictures how well the dark wax brings out the details of the piece.

The bottom drawer was missing part of the flourish detail.

So, I took the bottom drawer out until I can fix it correctly.  However, I’m liking the open concept of the bottom drawer.  I use the drawer turned shelf for our family photo albums.

The rest of the piece hold my craft supplies. This dresser is in my office, and it make a wonderful storage solution!
