The coolest part of this project was that I tried a new paint line by Amy Howard at Home. I had recently heard about this paint from my friend Renee over at The Refined Relic. Renee gave it a good review and it’s about $12 cheaper than the two I’ve been working with. I picked it up from a store I stumbled upon a few months ago in my work travels, Coastal Fog in Greenville, NC. I started following Coastal Fog on Facebook and saw that they picked up the paint line about a month ago and so last week I was in Greenville again and picked up a can in the color Selznick Grey. It is a fabulous color! They are very knowledgeable about the paint line and I cannot wait to try out the other goodies in the line like the lacquer spray paint, the milk paint and the Dust of Ages (up next)! This paint that I tried is similar to the other chalk paint lines that I have used in the past, a one step paint.

Back to the dresser. Here is the before.
All gussied up by my front door now. I loved styling this one.
I will be selling this one. I can’t keep them all! But it sure is tempting.
Other than painting I replaced the top knobs since it was missing one and I love these glass ones I found at Hobby Lobby. They went perfect with the bottom pulls
What do you guys think about this quick makeover?
Hope you all have a super fun Halloween tomorrow! We are not expecting a lot of trick-or- treator’s in our new neighborhood but hoping we get a few! I’m off to painting a mirror next, stay tuned!
