It’s been on my to-do list for more than two years now and it feels so great to say that I’ve FINALLY painted our little antique dresser!!!
I introduced you to this beauty a few weeks ago when I wrote about my maiden voyage with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint HERE. I fell in love with it when we were shopping for Baby Mercer’s nursery (*note that Baby Mercer is now almost two years old and goes by Carson). I knew right from the beginning that I would paint it white, yet I still wanted to find a way to keep the character (read: cigarette burns) in that gorgeous wood top. I chose to paint the base with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Old White and just a quick coat of wax over the dresser top and drawer knobs definitely brought some life back to the stained wood. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out – the cream colour sets off the beautiful wood tones just right!
I am really am beyond thrilled with how it turned out!!! So thrilled in fact, that I hate to put it back into our super boring guest room, which is definitely in need of a makeover itself. Although I am tempted to overhaul the entire room tonight, I promised
Brady myself that I would focus on one room makeover at a time. So it seems that since I’ve already committed to making a room for Carson (you can check out what we’re planning HERE), my dreams of a luxurious guest room will have to wait. I suppose that’s really okay because, if I’m being honest, I have absolutely no clue what I want to do with it yet anyway.
Instead staying up all night redecorating our guest room, I found a few more things to paint to tide me over:
I think these empty antique frames will look lovely grouped on the wall over the dresser (just as soon as I choose a spot for it).
Have you taken the Chalk Painting plunge yet?
