Curb Find Number Dresser


I was curb shopping when I found this very large and old dresser. Yes someone just threw it out! So I threw it in the truck and never locked back!! It needed some small repairs and then I decided to paint it.
I painted it a soft creamy color,sanded to give shabby look, then I glazed over the paint, and sealed it with a water based poly. Then added the numbers to give it some more interest.

    I'm sure it was a latex satin more then likely, I just started using chalk paint here in the last few months. It was probably dutch boy or behr as that was what I used a lot then. :) I sanded it lightly then applied the dark walnut stain over it. Then polyed it. I was really into that look for awhile.

    Thanks so much! I hadn't see that you used dark walnut stain over it! I like the look as much as the chalk paint, if not more. I really want to do a piece in that lighter color, and I'm sure I can find something similar, so I appreciate the help! Thanks for stickin' with me on it! LOL

      @tegma No prob! When you wipe the stain across it be sure to do it straight across and wipe it right back off. Don't do circles as it will look sloppy learned that the hard way! LOL Good luck! Post pics when you do something!!
