dresser "during"...

I showed you the amazingly ugly (but with good bones) "before" of our changing table/dresser for our baby girl's nursery a few weeks ago.  Here's a little refresher.

I picked up a sample jar of Annie Sloan's Chalk paint in Duck Egg Blue to see if I liked the color.  Ya'll, the hype about this paint is NO JOKE!  It was so easy to paint on, no odor, and covered like a dream.  Here's a close up of one of the more ugly corners of a drawer before it received a coat of paint:

Some sweet little child took a pen to it....and I didn't even realize until I edited the photo that it's a list of "People I Hate".  Ahh!  Poor TJ was the only soul on the list so far.

Here is that same corner after one quick swipe of Duck Egg blue.  Amazing!

That one tiny little 4 ounce sample pot was enough paint to cover almost the ENTIRE dresser with one coat of paint.  Can you believe it?  Here's a quick "during" shot of the dresser.


It will definitely need another coat of paint to evenly cover everything and a coat of wax, but I am amazed at the quality of this paint.  I'm on the lookout for other pieces of furniture that I can paint with chalk paint now...nothing is safe. :)

What have you painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint?

**By the way, Annie Sloan has NO idea who I am...just wanted to rave about this fabulous paint!  If Annie and her sweet people want to send me a box of chalk paint, I'd happily take it, but I bought this paint myself. :) **

Linking up to:


  1. I love that! I've been looking for a way to redo Jonah's boring dresser, I think you've inspired me!

  2. I can't wait to see this finished - I just posted a dresser I did with Duck Egg ( well duck egg and white combined to make a lighter version )
    Definitely your newest follower - would love to have you come by and follow back when you have the time!

  3. Well, a definite improvement so far! It's good to know how far a sample pot goes.

  4. I can't believe how little paint you used! I will have to try some Annie Sloan paint soon :) Can't wai to see how it turns out.

  5. I have been wanting to try the chalk paint so bad, I kepe hearing about it- looks great. I have the same style dresser for my nursery that I redid-
