Dresser Redo

In honor of welcoming our second boy into this world (Atlas Frey, born on January 9th), I felt it was appropriate to share the dresser I refurbished for his nursery. I wanted to find something that would double as a changing table so I was excited when I found this piece for 30 dollars. 

Here's the before photo:

I was itching to try Annie Sloan Chalk Paint so I picked up a container of Pure White and got to work. My vision for the nursery was light, airy colors. I applied three coats of paint and loved how stark white it turned out. I used the Annie Sloan Clear Wax and applied it on the dresser with a lint free cloth. I still need a little practice with the wax (or maybe I need to buy the brush) because there were some spots that were a little tacky. I believe it will be tacky if you use too much wax in one area. 

I picked up some new hardware from Hobby Lobby while they were 50% off to give it an updated look. 

This was a very easy and fun project! 

If you've been hesitant to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I highly recommend it! I love how my nursery turned out and I think the little man is loving it too ;) Thanks for stopping by!
