Chippy and Sweet

This sweet little dresser was in dire need of rehabbing. I removed two layers of warped veneer from the top. The whole piece was thoroughly cleaned and I applied Vaseline to create the chippy distressed effect. The piece was painted in General Finishes Empire Gray Chalk Paint and GF Antique White Milk Paint. The dresser was then distressed and glazed with General Finishes Van Dyke Brown Glaze. I love the natural look of the distressing. The whole piece (including the raw wood top) was sealed with GF High Performance Poly in a Flat finish. In rural Indiana country chic is very popular. I love the way General Finishes can help me fulfill the need, and create beautiful pieces with high quality products.
