Blue French Provincial Dresser



A friend of mine wanted to know if I wanted an old dresser she did not want any more.  She had moved and it did not fit in her new house. I of course said YES!
Before:

The dresser was in pretty good shape but needed a new look.

I mixed up my own aqua chalk paint and painted the dresser.  The blue color was a little bright so I made a wash of white chalk paint and washed the dresser.  After I got the blue the color I wanted I waxed the dresser with hemp oil/dark wax.  

The last detail was to paint on gold Rub N Buff  in a few places.  
























I love how it turned out!
