Chalk Painted Chest Of Drawers

August 18, 2015 by Terry

1A few weeks ago my husband had brought home a few pieces for me to “save”.  One of them was the Potting Bench and the other was this…

Color Blocked Chalk Painted Before PicI couldn’t tell exactly what it was … was it an oversized nightstand?  Like maybe what you’d find between the beds in a hotel room?  It really wasn’t a “dresser” dresser.  It was too small to be a dresser but too big to really be classed as a nightstand.  Anyhoo… it was ugly!

I started off by removing all the hardware and tearing out the fake brass rods on each side of the drawers.

There are actually only 3 drawers here.  I filled in all of the holes with wood filler as well as the horizontal groove in the middle of the two top drawers.

After the wood filler was dry and set I sanded it smooth and started to painting.  I decided to use chalk paint for this project. I have been using alot of Milk paint lately and felt the need for a change. I bought a few of the sample jars of the American Chalk Paint Co. and also used some that I already had. After sanding the whole piece smooth I finished it off with a generous coat of clear wax.

    What a great save! I have those drawer pulls too, and haven’t been able to figure out what to put them on yet (except one cabinet in my photo cottage). They were perfect for your piece!

      Thank you Quandie! There are so many unique and pretty pulls out there but it’s hard to match them up to the right piece sometimes! I think I’m a bit of a hardware hoarder! Ha!
      I hope you will join in on tonight’s party!
      Smiles!
