This weeks before and after comes to us from Sara Hollister- Jessick from surrey_lane_home on Instagram. We love her profile on Instagram! Her designs and creations always come out beautiful.  In this blog post, Sara has redesigned her vintage dresser using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan new color Svenska Blue.

Sara shares that this dresser is about 200 years old. She thought that this dresser could use a makeover and make it more dramatic. When she first started this project she stripped and sanded down the top of the dresser so she could show off the amazing wood grain. She layered a coat of Aubusson on first then She layered a coat of Svenska Blue. Sara finished the dresser with a coat of Chalk Paint® Dark Wax and the Chalk Paint®Clear Wax. The clear wax by Annie Sloan is the perfect finish for any DIY paint project! It’s a two in one, adds durability and makes the paint job really smooth.
