Annie Sloan Weekend Project Before and After

This was the "BEFORE" dresser.
It was in very good condition, a little outdated though and had lots of problems on the top!

As you can see below!  I think finger nail polish remover was the cause of the large spots on top!  I stripped the top and sanded it down.  Then, I painted the top with a nice coffee color stain and finished off with a coat of poly.

What a difference on the top!

I applied 2 coats of Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint.

Sanded edges to distress a bit.

Gave it a clear coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax.

Then heavily distressed with Annie Sloan Dark Wax.

I repainted all of the hardware and VOILA.

I think it turned out pretty good!

Another Chalk Paint Project Coming Soon!


  1. It's gorgeous! And the handles really stand out now!

  2. What a transformation! I LOVE painted furniture and the old pieces have such beautiful lines, carvings and character. Lovely job Dee!

  3. How did you transform the top? I would love the combination!

  4. Beautiful job! I love Annie Sloan paint.

  5. The 'before' and 'after' is such an inspiration and delight! Thanks!!
