Aqua Chalk Paint Dresser

Shanna from Restoration Redoux got this big, ugly brown dresser that was covered in melted wax and other unknown substances for only five dollars off of Craigslist. Yes, five buckaroos! After cleaning and airing it out, it was time for Shanna to work her magic!

Shanna gave the dresser three coats of homemade aqua chalkpaint, distressed it, and finished it off with clear wax. Then Shanna put it right back on Craigslist where the big and now beautiful blue dresser sold in minutes. And that, my friends, is how it’s done!

    The transformation really is stunning. It’s amazing how much lighter and brighter it is!

    I have a large ugly record console similar to this in the garage, that the hubbs brought home ages ago. I haven’t let it come in the house, but a redo like this might won me over.
