White and Neglected Craigslist Dresser Turned Green Beauty

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.

    Love it ! Green is my favorite color. I just painted a coffee table with DIY chalk paint. I do agree with you though homemade is not as creamy as the bought chalk paint. I had ordered a couple sample size colors from Fabulous Finishes and loved them. It was enough to paint something small.

    love it. Good job. My newest passion is Craigslist furniture re-do. And I've got a repainted bedroom set in the garage ready for its new home to prove it!

    I too would prefer Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, and homemade concoctions don't measure up but that apple green color is fabulous! Nice job!

    Thank you! It's always fun to try something new and I agree nothing measures up to the real thing! I do love the color as well. I'm going to try Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Antibes, one of the few colors I've yet to try!

    I love this dresser...the color is beautiful! I agree...the homemade versions are never the same and I ended up using ASCP most of the time. I love how the dark wax makes this look so rich.
