Furniture Facelift/Before & After

This was my Grandma's furniture. 

 It is 60 years old and lives at my sister's house. It was in desperate need of a facelift. My sister and I took on this project last week. First thing we did was prep the surface by cleaning it well and sanding some chipping pieces of wood.

 We purchased some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in downtown Nanaimo. We used old white on this dresser. We painted two coats then waxed with Annie Sloan Clear Wax. We took a trip to the Restore in downtown Nanaimo and bought some fun knobs. We felt good about reusing perfectly good merchandise and saving lots of money while helping out Habitat for Humanity. 

Here's the finished dresser! We were quite happy about the result.
