It was a well made vintage dresser that was all dinged and scratched up, but ready for a new look. I thought this dresser would look good in a chippy milk paint so I mixed together a few of Miss Mustard Seeds milk paints in her blues for a custom color. I wanted the top to be natural wood, so I sanded the top and stained it with AS dark wax and some hemp oil. After painting a few coats of milk paint the chippy magic happened and I scraped the loose chips off and sealed the dresser with dark wax/hemp oil. The final step was adding glass knobs (dlawlesshardware.com) to the dresser to give it a little pizazz!
