Color Blocked Dresser

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mothers Day Weekend!  We sure did.  It was eighty degrees and beautiful here!  My husband BBQ'd salmon for his Mom and we also had fresh Hood Canal Ship, they are so good.  

Also this weekend I finished up a waterfall dresser I picked up months ago.  I finally decided on a color.  Because I am planning to sell this piece it was hard to decide.  It finally spoke to me.

I used Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Old White for the Body and Duck Egg Blue for the top and drawers.

I have already painted two other pieces with Duck Egg Blue it is the prettiest color.  Especially after it is waxed.

The before was a lovely avocado green. 

I painted the top and drawers Old White first so that some would show through when distressed.  I really wanted that scratchy distressed look so I used 100 grit sandpaper.  I finished it off with wax.  

I was going to replace the original hardware because it was antique brass but decided to see what they would look like spray painted with oil rubbed bronze and I think it did the trick.  I really like the handles now. 

& I love the little wheels. 

So what do you think?  Are you feeling the color blocked paint look?  Have a great week!
