Vintage Red Chalkpainted Dresser
I bought this scratched up, dirty dresser off of craiglist. Once I got home and started cleaning it up I found a letter in it from 1917. It was a woman that was sending in a letter to apply for a teaching position. After finding that gem, I painted it with 3 coats of red chalkpaint, but in the can the paint was bright red but on the piece it looked maroon. I then coated it with two coats of another red to brighten it up. I then distressed it, repainted the original hardware and coated it in a clear wax.
