Painted furniture (thrift furniture) with Chalk Paint and Dark Wax


Painting my guest room furniture that I purchased either in Habitat Restore, Salvation Army, or other thrift stores - I have been practicing using Annie Sloan paint and wax on small pieces of wood and this is my first finished piece with this paint. I also included the drawers to a dresser I am working on. I love this paint and wax...it makespainitng furniture easy....you get what you pay for with Annie Sloan products.
