Double Dresser


Here is another piece from our trip to Florida,


This is what it looked like before.....I painted it my go to black,  Home Depots Behr "Black Forever". It goes on looking almost dark blue but dries a true black.  This dresser had a Formica top which I painted first with Chalk paint then with the black forever thinking that chalk paint is suppose to stick to everything then I could paint over it and that layer would stick.  NOT SO!  didn't work, so had to scrape off all the black paint both layers and leave it with a wood grain top.  Didn't look half bad and has already sold at the store.



Have a great week,
