It was stacked sideways against the back of a huge hutch so I didn’t notice it at first. It was originally marked $74.99, but was marked down to $49.99. Then at half off it was only $25, but wait…I had a $5 off coupon! So I scored this baby for $20! It was looking really good at that point!

It did have a few scrapes and bumps to contend with before painting, which was easily fixed with a little wood filler:
And I had to paint it without taking the drawers out since they were all screwed in place. Even after unscrewing any visible screw heads on one of the drawers, I still couldn’t figure out how to remove it, so I had to make do, but it wasn’t too bad.

I sure will miss these doors in my dining room. They make such a great backdrop for my furniture pieces!
It’s been a while since I just painted a furniture piece all white and called it a day, but with these pretty curves, I didn’t think this dresser needed anything more.

These knobs came from Tj Maxx/HomeGoods. If you haven’t looked there for knobs before, they are a great resource, and they are super cheap!
This would be perfect in a nursery to hold the changing table pad, or in a girl’s room with its petite size.
This is Behr’s Ultra Pure White made into chalk paint. (Chalk paint recipe and video HERE.)
A light sanding along the edges and a coat of Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax finished it off on the outside. See my tutorial for chalk painting furniture HERE.
And for the inside…black toile:
I found a couple of yards of this fabric at the same thrift store on another trip. And yes I did put that bottom drawer fabric on upside down. Oopsie. 😉
