New look for an old dresser


I am a nanny to two little girls age 3 and 18 months old. Their parents just redid their dressing room and Dad had a dresser that had been in the family forever. It had been painted numerous times and was currently black. I used DIY chalkpaint a little distressing and a stencil to turn this into a wonderful shabby chic dresser that matches the shabby chic of their bedroom.
