I painted it all over with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint.

I always use a Purdy paint brush, you never have to worry about

the bristles coming out!  They are awesome!

How many times have I said how much I love being able to distress with a wet cloth?

I may have to quit saying it, I don’t want you to get sick of it.

I loved the shape of the handles, to dress them up a little,

I applied Rub ‘n Buff in Turquoise.

    Oh gorgeous! Distressed to perfection!

    You distressed this with a wet cloth, instead of sanding? Also, how do you apply the wax, with a brush or rag? Thanks!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your dressers… it’s everything I want in the dresser I’m currently working on! What is this wet cloth distressing you speak of?

    Wow! Good for you seeing the potential in the dated dresser. It had “good bones” and now looks like a million $. I have a friend who is recently obsessed with rub n buff. I’ll have to tell her about your post. Robyn

    Another terrific redo! So nice to see the Turquoise Rub ‘n Buff in action. I’m going to link this on our Facebook page.

    I HAVE THIS EXACT DRESSER!!! It used to be my in-laws when my husband was a child. I painted it cream several years ago and used it in my bedroom in my last house. It ended up in the garage here at this house for the past few years and I JUST brought it back into my bedroom this week. I have plans to do a little distressing and to fix up the old hardware. I’ll be doing a post when I get it done.

    I didn’t like anything about that dresser till you were finished with it. I haven’t your eye for treasures. Now I like everything about it including the hardware! You’re good!

    This is a favorite!!! Such a great job! I did a very similar piece! I love the “bones” but my hardware was not as pretty. I LOVE THE TURQUOISE!!! Love, Reb

    Wow, it turned out to be gorgeous! I guess I need that “vision” that so many have. Two questions please ~
    1. How do you do the distressing with a wet cloth? LOVE the idea.
    2.Where did you find the turquoise rub ‘n buff?

    Thanks a million!

    You always do such a beautiful job. I would like to distress using a wet rag but need some direction! Thanks so much for all you share.

    so beautiful! What kind/size of Purdy brush do you use? I have not found a brush that doesn’t lose bristles.
