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.

    I picked up a dresser just like that I’m using as a tv stand at the moment but I’m missing one handle and the three rounds in the middle, any suggestions where I can find replacements that match? Thank you. lindabradmon@yahoo.com
