If you’re buds with me on Intragram, your know that I have been on the hunt for an old chippy dresser to replace my Ikea storage unit in my dining room. It’s one of those pieces I have been waiting to get rid of but can’t seem to let go unless I have something to replace it with.
I am not usually the patient type. I am the find it, flip it quickly kinds of people. So when I couldn’t find a dresser I liked for a month now, I had almost given up….. when the dresser found me. 🙂
I found an amazing Head board on OfferUp for wait… $25. It is a 100 year old antique head board and I can’t wait to show you my plans for it. When I went to pick it up, the gentleman who sold me the piece asked if I had come for the dresser as well. Wait. Whaaaaattttt dresser? The dresser was apart of the same set and I was in love. The best part… $50! I couldn’t believe it.
When I brought it home I chalk painted it with wait for it.. white chalk paint. I think I have a problem. Someone take the white away.
I sanded about 20 layers off the top of the dresser. I have yet to finish the top because I want the natural look to keep. Wax seemed to turn it a reddish brown and I am not too fond of that tone. But I couldn’t wait to show you guys! (See told you.. I am not very patient)
Overall, I am so in love with the piece. I was a bit over the floating shelves as well, so I thought I would switch it up and add this old classroom green chalkboard.
You guys. I have such a thing for green chalkboards. Like I dream about these things. Seriously.
These little changes is just what I needed to blend my new living room decor. I hope to start sharing that with you next week.. So stay tuned!
If you liked it, pin it or share it!!!
