Chalk Painted Dresser Makeover

Judy G
by Judy G
I am pretty happy with the way this dresser project turned out. It was an old dresser that was in pretty rough shape that I got for free many years ago.
I first of all filled in the holes and rough spots with wood filler, and then sanded. I used two coats of DIY chalk paint (latex paint mixed with plaster of paris), and then finished it with a coat of polycrilic. I also added the wood applique and changed the knobs.
I also lightly distressed it. The dragonfly knobs were from Lowe's.

    It's BEAUTIFUL!!! Great job! How much latex paint and plaster of paris do you use to make your own chalk paint? I love your color.
