Shabby Pink Dresser

A recent dresser makeover. This cute little piece started out in that lovely forest green color that was so popular in the 80's and early 90's. It also had an extremely prominent crackle effect there was no way I could disguise, so I had to make it work for me.

I painted it with a mix of Annie Sloan Old White, Pure White and Emperor's Silk to create a pink color.

Next I added a vintage label image, then sealed the paint with clear wax. I also used an abundant amount of dark wax to get into all the crackle nooks and crannies.

This is a little more on the "shabby chic" side than I usually do, but it turned out rather cute!

In place and ready for sale at All That Jazz!
