This little beauty was adrift in the depths of a local thrift store. It was only $9.99! I adore the curves, but I was a bit scared of that terrible shipping tape someone had used to hold the drawers in. Well, that tape was the toughest part of this whole redo! I went to town with the razor blade and goo gone and banished the tape residue forever!
I originally wanted to strip the drawers and do a 2 tone with wood and paint finish, but the finish DID NOT cooperate and refused to come off completely. So I went another direction. I whipped up some gray chalk paint for the base using my usual recipe. Then I used the Annie Sloan dark wax to create a roughed up finish.
Then I tried a new chalkboard paint recipe for the drawers. I used unfinished grout mixed with the paint and now my drawers are ready for witty messages!
I did love the fixtures that came with the dresser, but it was missing one, so I had to start from scratch and I will use the originals for a different project. I tried so many different options from Hobby Lobby, but decided on these and am happy with how it turned out!
I am looking for new sayings to shock my husband with...any suggestions?
