A Fun Dresser Makeover...and Still Time To Enter The Giveaway...

Recently, I worked on a fun dresser makeover for a granddaughter's nursery!  These photos were taken with a phone, so they aren't quite as clear as usual...

I started with this old 60's French Provincial style dresser.  It once was my hutch base in my dining room, and is no longer wonderful looking...

I gave it a coat of DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish in Relic...even painting over the metal handles.  It was finished with a coat of Americana clear wax
 and buffed with a soft cloth.

My son-in-law built a frame for a changing pad and it was painted out the same color and attached to the back...turned out so cute...

The Relic color looks so great with the white wainscoting, orchid walls...

and the fun pops of orange...

Cute, isn't it?
I am blogger for DecoArt, but received no compensation for this piece.

Before I go, I wanted to remind you about the fun Vintage Maya Giveaway 
I have going on right now!

I hope you'll stop by to enter...just click on the pillow icon!
