Get Inspired! Before & After Dresser Using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!

Chalk Paint is so easy to use!  Anyone can do it!  
If have an old dresser that needs some updating, this post
will inspire you to get started!

I am a Craigslist Junkie!  I find most of my pieces there or Goodwill.
If using Craigslist, just be careful when going to view the piece.  Make sure someone is with you.  

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It was in very good condition, a little outdated though and had lots of problems on the top!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

This piece sold to a lovely gal.  Hope to see her back!

I'm working on several more pieces and will post soon!
