Drab and Crippled 3-legged Dresser Makeover

This old dresser was on the way to the dump until someone stopped by the house wondering if I wanted it. Of course!!
A little drab. Only had 3 good legs but luckily leg #4 was in a drawer. Hubby was able to re-attach it.
Not much damage to the drawers or the sides but there was THIS. Burnt into the top. No way this isn't going to require some chalk paint. Black seems appropriate. I don't like to paint old pieces unless there is just no saving it. This one warranted the paint.
Black chalk paint and some light distressing at the edges and it looks great.
Graduating shades of turquoise on drawers, inside and out.
All finished and looking good!
