french grain sack inspired dresser

Found this beauty at a rummage sale for $20. Had to rip off the back and replace it and fix a drawer runner, but after that it was ready to paint. I love the french grain sack look and had seen another dresser done this way and I was in love. I love the distressed chippy look so took my sand paper and made some worn areas. The AnnieSloanChalkPaint didn't cover great the first coat and I had something seeping through. So I primed it instead, then went with the ASCP paint. I know it would have covered eventually, but with the high price of ASCP I just thought it would be economical to prime it. After it was painted, it distressed beautifully.
