Early in the week a client brought a dresser over that had been her mothers and she wanted it painted for her daughter-in-law who was about to have a baby.
The colors for the new baby's room are green and white and she wanted the dresser to be updated and the Mom -to-be was going to use it as the changing table and for storage. The DIL wanted the dresser white with some green and that was the only input I had, so I went for stripes!
I pulled out my chalk paint in Marshmallow Cream and Green Acres from The Urban Rooster and painted the dresser in 3 coats of the white first.
To get a crisp bright green I mixed the green with some white and added a smidgen of bright yellow. I taped the drawer fronts off using Frog Painters Tape and then painted the stripes in the bright green. While the green was drying, I painted the pulls for the drawers. The last steps were distressing and sealing the dresser with AS clear wax.
I had to take very quick photos because the dresser was being picked up right as I finished it.

My client was thrilled with the dresser and I hope the baby loves her Great-Grandmother's Dresser!
