A New "antique" Dresser From a Freebie

I have hated this dresser for five years and finally refinished it. I wanted to experiment with chalk paint so I made my own recipe from paint and unsanded grout that I had. It covered great! I used typography from The Graphics Fairy and then I sanded it down, mixed a wax with stain and painted it on. Thirty minuted later I buffed it off.The only difficult part of this whole process was moving the dresser from the bedroom to the porch and back by myself. Now I need to do the matching 9 drawer dresser.....
