French Dresser Love

Today I am going to show you a French Dresser I picked up at the local thrift store.  I know it seems like I get everything there and I mostly do! ;)

Here it is in all its glory,  I think it is so pretty.

Here is what it looked like when I bought it.  Not bad but not "pretty"

Here is a close up of a drawer they are all curved.
I painted the body of the piece Annie Sloans Country Grey mixed with Old White.  Then I mixed a LOT more Old White to that mixture and painted the drawers.  They appear almost white but they aren't.

I distressed the piece and used a clear wax on it and Poly on the top.  I also painted the drawer pulls.  First I sprayed them with an off white, then I painted them with the darker of the two colors and dry brushed them with the lighter color.  I didn't feel they had enough contrast so I used a dark wax on them in the crevices.

Have a great week!
