Chippy Goodness in a Dresser



I found this dresser at the Flea Market and it is just my kind of dresser ( actually what dresser isn't? ha ha )

This dresser was very scratched up and stained, but had such great features.  I had a few bags of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint that only had a bit of the powder left in them, but not enough to do an entire dresser.  I mixed them together (Boxwood, Flow Blue, Ironstone) and got my own blue/green color!  


I painted the dresser with 2 coats of the milk paint and left it to dry and boy oh boy did the chippy magic happen! I did add a bit of white to some of the details too.  



After sealing the dresser with AS dark wax/tung oil, I added back the stunning hardware and fell in love! 












LOVE the legs! 

Gorgeous Hardware!
