  1. I love the color, and those knobs match perfectly! It’s a little bit of blue and green–it will go with so many things. Please tell me you’re keeping it?!

  2. BEAUTIFUL!!! you know how i love gold accents!!!! and those knobs are awesome! you did a fabulous job!!!! and she has a pretty sweet name. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. That is an old and probably very valuable dresser, however like me, since you were not in to preserving its value, the paint is stunning on this piece.

    1. I totally agree. I waited for several years before actually deciding to paint it. I really didn’t want to paint it. I was trying to sell it the way it was because (like you) I think this piece has value. But nobody wanted it and I have no room for it. There is just a higher demand for painted furniture ๐Ÿ˜‰
      That’s why I decided to paint it.

  4. FABULOUS, Julia!!!! What will we do with TWO inspiring furniture painters, it’s only a matter of time before I’m distressing something and visiting HL for knobs!

    1. Cassie is the master of chalk paint. And you should because it’s fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Beautiful, love that color and how you added the gold detail, makes it very “you”! I have a chalk paint project on my to do list too, can’t wait to try it!

      You can shop your heart out online!

  6. Wow! It looks fantastic!! And I sure did recognize those knobs right away. Good work!

  7. I think it is just beautiful. I am (hope no one sends me hate mail) not into distressed at all.. maybe because I am, well never mind that. ha ha

    I also adore that color and after thinking I no longer wanted shiny gold in my house, I am loving these gold accents you applied. Those knobs are the bees knees too!

    I am saving stuff from off the street (chair, small end table, etc) to wood glue back together and sand and paint. I too am very much wanting to try chalk painting. Also have some old, small tables, like a telephone desk, another very small half table & a tall, round layered shelf one that I inherited from my parents & two end tables that were fairly new before they passed that I just don’t like that I want to paint. Not expensive like this you did, but very old, in fact they were second hand to my parents. And I did not see any laws on must distress if chalk painting…. yes I guess I am a rebel?

    1. That’s awesome that you are saving things from the street. And no you don’t have to distress, you are right.

  8. Absolutely perfect color choice–especially with the gold accents. “Cassie” is simply beautiful, Julia! (It seems your first foray into chalk paint was a rousing success!) Great job, girl!

  9. Beautiful and those hobby lobby knobs are gorgeous! love, love the gold on the scrolls Julia! the color of paint you choose is perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. That is a freaking sweet dresser! I want one!

  11. I like it! I think it would look really good in red as well! Great work!

  12. Wow you really brought that thing back to life! You should be proud of how it turned out.

  13. I seriously had those knobs in my hand at Hobby Lobby and thought I have to think of something I could do with these! I love everything about it!

  14. Came out great! I love the color you chose. And that you added the little gold detail at the top. Beautiful!

  15. Oh wow, I love it! And the color is so pretty!

  16. Absolutely gorgeous, Julia! I cannot believe you had never used chalk or milk paint before!? It looks beautiful so I’m thinking you need to do more…the finish is perfect with the small amount of distressing. And I’m loving the brass seashell vase, too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Jesse @ Scout & Nimble

    1. You better believe it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes I think I have to do more.
      And thank you so much!

  17. How pretty! Love the color Julia, and yep, I think you should name her Cassie! I’ve been known to ask her opinion more than once. Love her work.

    saw you on roadkill rescue–pinning!

  18. Hi: I found you over on Hometalk! This is gorgeous… I too painted a dresser with Annie Sloan chalk paint and was SO happy with the result. How easy is that! Amazing. It is certainly my paint of choice now! I’ll go over and follow you right now…

    I’m curious… I bought some of this paint, and it looks so much darker than your dresser… did you cut the paint at all with white? Also… did you use 2 coats of green, or did you do one white and then a coat of green?

    Thanks!
    Tonya B.

    1. Hmmmm I’m not sure why yours looks darker. I didn’t do anything to my paint.
