On my blog, I’ve shown how I transformed my gorgeous side table with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence. I decided to use the same paint to transform old dresser in the room. This dresser is really old, its one of those furniture pieces someone abandoned in my old college apartment and I kept. I figured it couldn’t get any worse so I might as well paint it and see what happens, and I’m so glad I did.

I removed the drawers and started with the top and sides. I kind of liked the look of the brown front and blue surround but the front was so damaged it needed to be painted. I did leave some pops of brown in the pull outs.

The drawers were lined with the most ugly green contact paper, I decided to rip that out and line the drawers with something cuter. I found this gorgeous gift wrap paper at Marshalls and decided to use it to line the drawers. It was really simple, I simply cut the paper to size, painted the drawer with mod podge (yes I ‘borrowed’ one of the twincesses’ paint brushes, don’t judge me) and put the giftwrap in being careful to press out any air bubbles as I went. I even did this with the side of the drawers as well.

    Cool ....Beautiful mid century chest of drawers..I love wood so I would have used my Special Wood Cleaner and your trick for lining the drawers. If you like natural wood and don't want to refinish you can use Finish Rejuvenator. Www.the

    Looks like a first grader did it. It looked better before. It looks like it could have been hand made and you colored on it.
