So I’m heading into the home stretch of my French Caribbean guest room makeover. Thank goodness!!
Here’s a sneak peek at my latest makeover… my chalk paint dresser.
For this makeover I used the same homemade chalk paint recipe that I used for my Weather Beaten Triple Dresser Makeover. This time I mixed it with some white Ooops paint that I already had from the Restore. I had already painted the top by the time I remembered that I should take a before pic. Ooops!
We picked this dresser up for $50 years ago. It’s held together with antique nails, and the drawers have dovetailed joinery.
The hardware seems original. The white knobs are glass.
It’s way too big a job to carry furniture downstairs and out of the house to paint, so I tend to paint pieces right where they are.
Three coats of the chalk paint and this baby is almost done. I still have to add a top coat of wax or poly to finish it off. Probably polyurethane because I have some Benjamin Moore Stays Clear on hand.
Here’s the before again. I never really liked the orangy coloured wood.
And here’s my chalk paint dresser … from an orange fright to a white delight.
I really love the fresh white of this dresser against the blue walls. You’ll see how it looks in the guest room when I post my reveal at the end of the month. I can’t wait!!
I finally found the perfect thing to repurpose into a headboard, so I’ll be working on that this weekend. Then just a few final minor touches, and the room will be ready. Yay!!!
Thanks so much for reading! Have a great weekend!
