Masculine Dresser Makeover

My son was 7 when we bought this dresser. And over the last 11 years he's used this dresser to it's max. It was a great dresser but it's pulls were breaking and a glide or two needed repaired. I decided to give him a taller dresser with more room and give this one a makeover!!
Painted out in American Paint Company Freedom Road and the harlequin pattern is a stencil from Cutting Edge Stencil Company. The details were done in a perfect navy- APC Born on the 4th. Updated hardware on a budget- Home Depot 10 pack just under $20.
Boys apparently are rough on their dressers...
I lightly traced each diamond and filled them in hand painting.
Lightly distressed and waxed the entire piece with The Furniture Connoisseur's Antique Walnut wax. {love love that wax}
Perfect masculine finish without being too much!!

    Okay so I have a very similar dresser and want to paint ours. How exactly did you paint this and with what?

    Did you use only two colors? One for the dresser and the other girls the stencil?

    Did you sand it first to stop the varnish bleeding through?
