A New Dresser

I have a makeover to share that I just love.  It feels like a brand new dresser!

A friend is in the process of making over her daughter’s bedrooms.  She has beautiful, solid Ethan Allen furniture that she wanted to restyle.

Forgive me, I started and then took the picture.  Rookie mistake.

One coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and the dresser is already transformed.  A second coat was applied, then a coat of wax, distressing and another coat of wax.

This is a big dresser!  The great thing about it is it’s in perfect shape.  What a change from my usual projects.

Here she is with two coats before the distressing.

And here she is in the little girl’s room.

The hardware is original, just painted and waxed.

It has a nice coordinating mirror that received the same treatment.

We picked up this piece with its coordinating mirror and delivered it 8 days later.  Whew.  That is the beauty of Chalk Paint.

Hope she loves it as much as I do!

Make it a great day!
