DIY chalk paint project dresser. I tried a
different look at first but it just wasn't my
style or for that matter the dresser's style.
Come take a look at my FRENCH L BLU
furniture makeover and let me know what
With this project I playing with color. I mixed this awesome blue shade using Annie Sloan Chalk
Paint. I'm sorry to say though it was a kitchen counter creation with no recipe, but for those of you
wanting to try to recreate it, it is very close to Duck Egg but not as strong,
This is the BEFORE, quite a difference huh?
It had been painted in a chocolate brown latex and I tried to use the brown

I adding the legs and these wonderful swirling appliques.
They change the whole feel and shape of the dresser.
All the distressing made the piece come alive and I achieved the right look.
The drawers also got a silver and blue liner.
Wallpaper available at Homedepot.
The escutcheons (fancy keyhole plates) are just for looks,
and George has these handles in his Etsy shop.
