Here is what it looked like before. Excuse the really bad photo. It was the only before shot I could find.
Here is the after!!!
I mixed up some homemade chalk paint with Cottage White by Behr. I gave the body and the first drawer two coats.
I started out by mixing a sample of aqua that I have on hand with some white. I painted the bottom drawer and then added more white paint to aqua and I kept going until it got lighter and lighter.
For some reason the top two drawers look like the same color in the pictures, but I promise that they are not.
I changed out the hardware on the top. I found these awesome glass knobs at Hobby Lobby. I have only been once, but I am in love with it. It's 40 miles away from me, so I will definitely be making trips more often!
I painted the remaining hardware with the same white as the body and then glazed it. I found a whole bunch of glaze on clearance at Lowes last year. This one was a white glaze with a pearl like color. I added black to it.
I am loving this dresser. It might be hard to let it go. I just might end up keeping it for my daughter. Her big girl room is going to be pink and aqua. This would be perfect for it! I'll just put a high price tag on it. If it sells then fine, but if it doesn't, well, that's fine too!!!!
