Dresser Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

I scored 2 identical dressers on Craigslist for $25 each!  I had to glue a couple of the drawer fronts, but otherwise they were in really good condition. I painted them with Annie Sloan's Chateau Grey, but as you can see, the color is more of a sage green. (I wish she would name her colors appropriately!). I then distressed them with my sander and glazed them with a walnut colored Minwax stain. I also spray painted the hardware with Rustoleum's Oil Rubbed Bronze. I am thrilled with the results!!

I will be posting again soon using these dressers in our Master Bedroom makeover :)!

  2. I just did a redo in ASCP too. I used the color graphite on a very beat up chest. I am redoing my son's room. Can you believe how much work it is to redo one little room? Good luck with yours.

  4. I have an antique oak dresser that I have tucked away in the basement. Maybe I should make it my first chalk paint project. I certainly love the way yours turned out!

  12. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but
    I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
