Union Jack Dresser

Dumpster Rescue! I saved another one from the garbage men! This 1940’s waterfall dresser was such a solid piece, I couldn’t pass this up. It was in great shape despite the fact it was sitting in someone’s garage or basement for the past 60 years! 
I sanded, primed and painted this in a grayish taupe color and then taped out the layout for the Union Jack design
The Before….
The After! 
I used Duck Egg Blue and White for the colors of the flag

French Linen Numbered Dresser

I love this little chest of drawers that I painted for a client, so simple and classy looking!  And the hand lettering just gives it that extra something special.
I painted this using my own version of chalk paint using a color that was the closest to Annie Sloan’s French Linen.


I taped out how wide I wanted the stripe to be and then I used Behr‘s Gray Morning in a Matte finish.
I just used a black acrylic paint for the hand lettering. I printed out my image from the computer.  I used carbon paper to transfer the images on the wood.  I traced over the image and then filled in the outline.



The hardware was sprayed in Rustoleum’s Oil Rubbed Bronze. My go to color for hardware!
I also sanded down the edges a bit with a sanding sponge to give it a lightly distressed feel.
