Happy Election Day!!
I hope you've gotten the chance to get out and vote. I'm wearing my "I voted!" sticker proudly today! :)
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned some of the craziness going on in my life in this post.
One of the things I shared was that my Aunt had given me a dresser. Yes, for FREE!!
Today I'm sharing with you how I transformed it. I apologize for the low quality pictures...I took these with my iPhone.
Here is the before:
When I saw it, it was love at first sight. I love all the detailing, the pretty legs, the little drawer on top...
I didn't really have a place for it in my house but I currently have a dresser in my closet that is falling apart and thought it would be a good idea to switch it out with this one.
I decided to paint it in Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint in Bergere. I've painted other pieces in this color before and I love the gray/blue hue.
Here it is after the first coat and before all the magical chipping started to happen.
Here's the the little drawer after I got the look I was after. I did a white wax over it.
Here is the beautiful piece once it was all finished. I love all that chippiness goodness!!
I spray painted the hardware black and love how it pops!
Thanks for stopping by!!
God bless America.
