vintage dresser

Really excited about my "before and after" project being featured on Apartment Therapy!
This older dresser was dark and a little gloomy, but had pretty, ornate details that I knew would look great with an "antique finish." A fresh coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White" did the trick to lighten and brighten this old guy up! After it was painted, I distressed all the edges and places where it would naturally wear over time. I then applied a dark finishing wax to give it an "antique" look and also to give it a protective finish. A couple coats of white paint really transformed the whole piece and gave it the updated look it needed!
