Before and After

Does everyone know what this wednesday is? Its chalk paint project reveal time! After my initial post on the miracle paint, I ended up salvaging and painting a total of three pieces, one dresser and two nightstands and boy, what a difference a fresh coat of paint makes! I have yet to find the perfect hardware for the dresser, honestly, I think I’ve tried 6 different types of knobs! Bear with me, I have faith I’ll find the right ones, but until then, the nightstand photos will have to do.  My original thought was to change out the hardware, but once they were painted, I actually liked the original pulls on it. So without further anticipation, I give you the


nighstand before

And after…

nightstand after

Sorry about the crooked iphone photos, I really do need to start using a better camera. But you get the idea. Some difference, right? For the dresser, I’ll make sure to take some close ups so you can see the naturally distressed look that makes chalk paint so good!

    Looks great – I would love to see the finished dresser. I just went to a 3 hour Chalk Painting class last week and am preparing for my first big project with the paint — a big buffet and hutch that I plan to repurpose into my bathroom! I am excited! Fingers crossed that it turns out!

    I had been wondering how the chalk paint project turned out. That nightstand is great and the paint job is an excellent improvement!
