1, 2, 3, 4 - Antique Chest of Drawers!

I have been taking a bit of a break from keeping up with the blog posts.  I think if I did not have a full time job, I would enjoy writing this little blog a whole lot more!  I don’t plan on going anywhere though as I’ve discovered it’s a great way to chronicle life, family, and adventures, my favorite three things in the whole world!  So, my personal adventure continues….
 
Over the past month of so, I took a break to open up a small space at an antique mall in Columbus, OH.  After attending a live auction at the end of August, I have been full steam ahead.!  I think I knew this all along, but I am now 100% sure that I love all things vintage and/or antique!  Well, most things. 

Take this chest of drawers for instance.  When I picked it up, it had a huge water stain on the top and one of the drawers kept sticking. 

I looked at it and looked at it and finally thought, I like the bones of this piece. I want to make it beautiful again!

It sat in my garage for a few weeks…I thought about it each each time I passed by. I wanted to pick the perfect color and I don’t start painting until I have a plan.

I chose gray, with homemade chalk paint! I really, really want to try Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, but that paint is so darn expensive! I also wanted to try a technique I had been reading on  some of the blogs I follow where they number each drawer – so I gave it a shot!

I’m LOVING the way it turned out! What do you think?
