I hope you're having a good Monday so far. It is just too hot here in GA to go outside and do anything! So, I've been staying inside with the air conditioning. How about you? Is the summer weather nice or unbearable where you live?
Since it has been unbearable outside here, I took advantage of being inside and painted the dresser in my guest bedroom this weekend. I'm so glad to have this project done because it was so tedious!
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen, clear wax and dark wax. I took the handles off and painted them white for contrast. I was going to leave the handles alone until I saw how bad they looked with the new paint color.
Due to the cabinet doors and drawers this was a bear to paint! I used Annie Sloan dark wax to give it more of an aged look and it was different from the dark wax I've used in the past. So, I had to get used to the difference. I think that is why it took me so long to complete this project.
Here is a reminder of how it looked before.
And now the after.
It looked fine before but didn't flow with the room as well. This is the rest of the room.
So, I'm glad that it is done and is a huge improvement over how it was before in this room.
Now, if I can just get someone to use it!
Thanks for stopping by.
