From Rough to Rich


Hello there!

Just a quick post to show you a before and after.

Remember this dresser?

It was in pretty sad shape.. It had stickers all over it and drawers that didn’t function very well.

I scraped off the stickers with Goof Off and sanded it down a bit. My husband replaced the drawer bottoms and placed new drawer stops so they wouldn’t slide in too far.

I painted it with Old White Chalk Paint. I finished with a coat of clear wax and then used some dark wax (heavier on the drawer fronts). I like the subtle two-tone look that resulted.

A diamond in the rough is now a pretty piece…

Now on to the next project.



Hope you are enjoying these last weeks of summer.
