The chalk paint I used
Updating an Old Dresser
I wanted to give new life to a dresser I bought 8 years ago! I found a picture of what I wanted. It was a moss green dresser with stenciled numbers under the knobs today add some character. I bought the chalk paint and stencils and black acrylic paint from wal mart. I already had a drop cloth and a roller at home. I emptied out the dresser and took out the drawers and wiped down the dresser with a wet towel. You don’t have to do any prep with chalk paint but I was just dusting it off. I painted the base first and then did the drawers. I did three coats. The next day I put some black acrylic paint on a paper plate and got a little sponge to do the numbers under the knobs. This was a super easy project, but made a big difference.
One side done.
