After the hustle and bustle of working with my Chair for Charity, getting it to the photographer early, and George's accident and ER visit, I have finally finished one of the dressers I previously started. Isn't this color amazing, the knobs made me do it! I have been wanting to show you how far Annie Sloan Chalk Paint can really go.

This little pot of ASCP in Emperor's Silk (seen above)
covered this vintage 4 drawer dresser (shown below)
and I still have some left in the pot.

On average I can paint 4 pieces this size with a regular size can,
but it also depends on your original finish and what you want to achieve.

The original finish did lend it's self to red so take that into consideration when choosing your color.
I did also paint the top but changed my mind and washed it off. 

This dresser is probably at least 100 years old. You should see
the construction it's amazing. The story as we were told when
 we purchased it was it spent many years through the middle
 of the 20 century on Campobello Island on the east Coast of
 Canada. The owner's uncle was a Canadian senator with
 a vacation home there and friends with Franklin Delano
 Roosevelt who often visited as the Roosevelt's also
vacationed on Campobello.

Before I gave him his new color and a shiny top
I fixed all the issues that had arisen with age.
