I also bought some new chalk paint from a very cute couple who had just started their line of chalky paints: Urban Rooster (theurbanrooster). I usually y mix up my own chalk paints, but decided to give this paint a try. I painted this dresser in Smokey Ash and I really like the grey color and the consistency of the paint. I will be buying more!

I wanted the top of the dresser to be natural, so I sanded it down and sealed it with dark wax and hemp oil.
I have been wanting to try a tinted wax for awhile and this dresser had gorgeous details that I knew would pop with some white wax. First I took a few spoonfuls of AS clear wax out of the tin with a plastic spoon and added it to an empty yogurt container. I then added about 1-2 spoonfuls of white paint to the wax and stirred it up.
After painting the dresser with 2 coats of Smokey Ash I started to wax the dresser. I dipped my brush in the white wax and "painted" it on the dresser and wiped off/rubbed in the wax. I love how it stayed in the grooves of the wood details and gave the dresser a weathered/worn look.

For the details around the drawers I handprinted them with some white chalk paint.

I love the new chalk paint and using the tinted wax!
