Grey French Provincial Dresser – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi All! I’m enjoying some family time this week before school starts next week. That means I’m keeping today’s Tuesday’s Treasures on the kind of short and sweet side. :)

I loved the lines and quality workmanship with this piece. I had to buy it as soon as I saw it. We even fit this monster in the back of my van with two little kids. :) It’s super heavy and worth every muscle used to lug it around.

Here it is before: 

I used Benjamin Moore’s Asphalt grey and turned it into chalk paint to paint the dresser and then glazed it using Valspar’s Antiquing Glaze. I also did a secret technique to make the paint crack in little spots and give it an authentically aged look. I can’t tell you ALL my secrets now can I?? ;) 

 We took hardware from another piece and painted it hammered black using spray paint. Also, we sealed it with a water based poly. This one went to Amanda in South Carolina with this Grey and Cream Hutch.  Amanda and I are working on another shipment now, too. :) Thank you so much Amanda!! It’s been a blast working with you.

Ready for the rest of the pictures?
