Old Nightstand brought back to life

I bought this at Goodwill for 9.50 and painted it with homemade chalk paint. Then I distressed it and sealed it with ASCP clear wax and then dark wax. I painted the handles with Oiled Bronze spray paint. Now it is beautiful.

    Here is a you tube about chalk paint and using DIY or the different boutique ones (Annie Sloan, Fat Paint,CeCe Cauldwell...etc) and to wax or not and what can be used to save money. I really liked this video... http://cottageinstincts.blogspot.com/2013/05/my-honest-opinions-on-chalk-paint-and.html It helped me make some decisions on what choices to make.

    Nicely done,I just posted our very similar dresser and side tables,but I took the scroll work off.however..I do really like scroll work painted. There were too many issues with our giant dresser. Dust collecting for one. Huge dresser. I really like what you have done...one of my favorite colors too.
