Seriously, every time I walk into the dining area and I see her, I kind of get giddy, because I can’t believe how beautiful she is, and that she’s mine. I feel like she’s this extra special piece of furniture that is way too cool to be in our house. Really I do.
Okay so here is Simone, before she was made over to be “Simone.”
She was dirty and dinged up. She felt unloved for sure.
And this is Simone after all of my hard work.
I know she needs pretty things to set on top of her, that’s my next step, but just look at all of her smiles! (That’s what my husband says she looks like she’s doing, hehe.)
I used Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in the color of Provence on her, and for the hardware I did a quick coat of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Old White. The two outside top drawers don’t match the original hardware since it was missing, so I pulled the knobs off of another antique dresser I own to take their place.
I used a 1 inch Purdy brush to paint over the hardware really fast, and it dried super quick. Only took 1 coat too.
I love Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, can’t say enough good things about it. I can’t wait to paint other pieces with it too. And to try other colors! I envision myself going around and painting everything with chalk paint. :) I think I’m going to start requesting Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and supplies for my birthday too!
Thanks again you guys, for reading a long, and encouraging me while working on Simone. Hope you like her final outcome, I sure do.
