White and Neglected Craigslist Dresser Turned Green Beauty

8.9K Views
I transformed this once neglected white dresser I found on Craigslist into a gorgeous addition to my home. This was the first time I used a home made chalk paint recipe (Nowhere near as great as Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan). The paint color is called Happy Camper by Behr and the depth of color was achieved by using Annie Sloan dark soft wax.

    Melody, I am just learning about the wax coat. Can it be also applied to semi-gloss latex paints?

    I've been looking at what seems like thousands of samples of green paint. I hope this looks as awesome in person, as it does on my computer. I am so borrowing this idea and color scheme!

      Lisa, the color is great, but this also has a dark wax over top. So you might want to either add some dark wax or a glaze if you want to deepen the color a bit.
