Dresser makeover + Wedding Programs

There is nothing better than getting a free dresser. This one was beautiful to begin with, but the DIY junkies we are, we decided to play since it was FREE :)

Here is the before:

Then we sanded the top:


and painted the piece. We made our own chalk paint in a light grey. Visit this post to see how we made the chalk paint.


then we used green Frog tape to paint lines.


And used dark wax to create dimension. We always do our projects at night, so we apologize for the bad pictures we always take. Just easier once the little guy is down for the night to get things done ;)


and then I lined the drawers because they were a little nasty with paper from World Market.


Isn't it beautiful! Yes it is next to the front door for the moment. Don't judge, we live in a small apartment :)



I love the details. Joe did a great job staining it.


Total for this project: $0

Here's a little project a whipped up for a friend's sisters wedding:
