This dresser belonged to my grandparents, then my parents, and most recently to my brother. When he moved into a swankier bachelor pad, he gave the dresser to me.
I knew I wanted to paint it, but I wasn't really sure what look I was after. So, I took a few months to
think it over procrastinate.
I mean, why rush things? It's not like you're waiting for me to finish a room or anything. Sheesh.
After all that thinking, you'd think I'd come up with a brilliant idea. But, instead I went with my first thought which was to use chalkpaint. (Hey...if it ain't broke...)
I used French Linen on the outside of the dresser and drawer handles. The drawers are Old White.
I used dark wax over clear wax to finish 'er up.
Please excuse the ugly black plug. I would have removed it for your viewing pleasure, but somehow that one plug is responsible for our home's entire Wifi capability. I dare not mess with that.
So there you have it. The final piece to the "tween room" is complete.
Guess that means a room reveal is coming soon. I just need to dust, declutter, remove dirty laundry and make it look like my son lives like a civilized being. That might take a little time :)
