Coastal Blue Dresser


A friend was moving a few weeks ago and offered me two dressers, and you know me and dressers, so I of course took them both home.  The dressers had been Aunt Millie's and were very well made, but scratched and dinged. 

Before: 


I mixed up a custom coastal blue color and made it in to chalk paint and got to painting.  



After two coats I lightly distressed the edges and then sealed the dresser with clear Carnuba wax.  












This was a quick and easy transformation!
