Ben’s Baseball Dresser – Another Chalk Paint Project

I created this project September 2014

Pinterest inspiration, an old chest (I estimate $25 as I purchased a dresser and night stand at the same time – all for $75), Annie Sloan Old White paint, sharpies, clear wax, and one afternoon turned an old dresser into a new one for Ben’s room.  At first I tried red paint for the stitching….whoa!  That didn’t work.  So more Annie Sloan Old White over the red paint (good thing I hadn’t done too much).  Then I tried sharpies.  That worked great.  I know my baseball isn’t completely round and an artist I’m not, but he’ll get the idea.   I left the inside as it was because it was in good shape.  As Jack Buck would say, “It’s a winner!”
