Turquoise Turquoise Turquoise!

My husband had this old dresser that had been in his family for many years.  It was actually his dresser when he was a baby and his brother’s dresser before that.  Considering the sentimental value of this piece, I was quite nervous to take on the task of making it new and fun again.  However, after MUCH consideration…  I went for it!  And I am SO happy with how it turned out!

This is how it looked when I began.  I had done a small bit of sanding at this point and removed the drawers and hardware.

This was after one coat of milk paint…  I was nervous…  but pushed on.

After the second and third coat of milk paint, I was feeling a bit more optimistic!!

Drawers and hardware on and I had begun the distressing process here.  I also re-stained the top of the dresser with a dark stain that turned out lovely.
