THE POWER OF PAINT - pink striped dresser

This dresser use to be in a man's garage,
storing tools and other greasy manly things.
This makeover reminders us of how powerful
paint and color can be.

Check out the Before and After below

BEFORE                       AFTER

I used three Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors, Coco, Antoinette, and Old White. 

I used painter's tape to create the stripes on the drawers and the end panel.

I added all the trim to make her prettier.
These were donated to the Restore, you just never know what you might find at one of their stores.

All the trim was hand painted to show off the details and make her as pretty as she could be.
After all she deserves it for her garage storage duties earlier in life.

And don't forget to check what is in stock for shabby
 chic hardware at firstfinds.
