Upcycled chalk painted dresser

Since I'm still honing my chalk painting skills I though I'd paint one of my dressers. I had spray painted this dresser with hammered spray paint about 5 years ago. I liked it but you know when you get stared with chalk paint you go crazy ! I made DIY chalk paint from a 7oz sample from Lowes. I had to do three coats of paint to cover the dark grey color of the dresser and then CeCe Caldwell dark wax. I took the existing hardware off and replaced them with painted wooden knobs. I wanted the knobs to blend in and not take away from the stud design. For the studs I used the 5 yard roll from Joann Fabric. You only have to nail a stud every 4th stud. The rest of the studs are solid.
