A Fancy Pants Yellow Chalk Paint Dresser Makeover

Pin It

So just to really prove how totally obsessed I am with the colour yellow at the moment, I went a painted a dresser in my fave colour of the moment.

The dresser was a roadside find (yes thank you dear Husband - you did hit scavenging gold), and I had previously stripped off the old dark lacquer and taken it back to its original colour. I liked it, but I didn't LIKE like it as it was just a bit meh!

When I was sent a sample of some Annie Sloan chalk paint in Arles (yellow) to try out, I went hunting around the house for something to try it on, and whaddya know - this little baby was screaming for some paint loving.

This paint is seriously perfect for lazy asses like me. I had already done the hard yacka taking off the old lacquer, but I needn't had bothered cause this paint goes straight on to pretty much anything.

No I am not exaggerating even a little. 

Walls? Yep! 
Metal? You betcha! 
Kitchen Cabinets, floors, plastic and terracotta? Piece of cake!

3 coats of paint, 2 vodka cruisers, a pack of burger rings and a buffing of the Annie Sloan Soft Wax and this little beauty was done like a dinner.

And since I only used barely a quarter of the the 946ml tin, I have literally a bucket load to makeover anything else that isn't bolted down.

You likey? 

I likey!
