French Provincial Dresser


I found this great French Provincial Dresser by Bassett on CL last week and brought it home.  



I thought this dresser would look good in soft neutral colors so I created my own custom color from ooopsie paint from my local paint store and then made it into homemade chalk paint.  


I painted the dresser with two coats of the paint and then a added some white to it and got a lighter version and I painted the drawer fronts.  The next step was stop seal it with dark wax/tung oil.
