My landlord picked up this adorable dresser from the dump, if you can believe it. He had taken it to the flea market a couple of times, but it did not sell. I told him that if I painted it, I could sell it right away at Loot and give him some of the profit.
I love the size of this dresser and the long, turned legs. One of the wooden knobs was missing, but I realized that I had exactly eight, glass knobs (the same ones I used on this, similar dresser), so I upgraded all the knobs.
I painted the dresser with my old favorite combination: Country Gray Chalk Paint with white trim. I really like the neutral, putty color of the Country Gray and I think it pairs splendidly with items brought in from nature. Besides being one of my personal favorite Chalk Paint colors, all of the pieces of furniture I have painted with Country Gray have sold right away.
I applied Annie Sloan's clear wax over the entire dresser for a beautiful sheen.
It was a success; the dresser sold this past weekend at Loot!
