I picked this little dresser up at a thrift store. And, I have no before shot! :( It was just a chunky little brown thing, but with lots of character: raised trim on the top two drawers, and curvilinear trim board along the bottom of the dresser. It had good bones as in dovetailed drawers, and solid wood. I decided to paint in daffodil yellow chalk paint, with a base coat of a warm neutral golden color, and then liberally distress to show the original brown stain. I love how that looks with yellow. We have had these cute little hand painted wooden knobs in our inventory for ever. They are perfect for this piece.
This is the sweetest little dresser that we acquired a few months back for free. It is very old, even has odd shaped nail heads, but in really good shape with a high gloss finish. Strangely it had a gaping hole in the top, and a broken leg on one side. But, with the help of two different "handy men" these were easily repaired. :) I painted the entire piece with two coats of antique white home made chalk paint, and then moderately distressed to play up where the flaws were fixed. It is now farmhouse cottagey chic and ready to move on to its' new owner where it will reside in an upstairs hallway and store linens. I love everything about it from the bowed front keyhole drawers, the chunky wooden knobs, to the funky trim and (hidden top drawer)shhh.
