Child's Chalkpainted Dresser and Bookshelf

I got this dresser and bookshelf at a yardsale. They were dark and dirty and the dresser had water damage. I sanded down the top and got to work. I painted them with DIY chalkpaint in pink, blue and yellow. I then distressed them, shined up the hardware and coated them in AS clear wax. They were a Christmas gift for a clients children. To see more of my furniture and craft projects head on over to!
