Chalk Paint Dresser Makeover

My mom has had these two old dressers she's been wanting to update for years. I helped her update them to match her room with chalk paint and a white washing technique! The difference is amazing!
I love how they turned out! Ready for the before?
Here they are before! They didn't match at all. They were great solid wood pieces though. Just in need of a little love!
I painted them both with two coats of a dark grey chalk paint by DecoArt.
Then I made a grey wash to add texture to the drawers and tops. I also added a soft varnish to the drawers and tops to protect them from normal wear and tear.
Here's the finished product!
