You Won’t Believe how this $25 Dresser Looks After She Painted it

Without any sanding or stripping the piece, Charlene Wray painted this old dresser with Clay / Chalk / Mineral paint and added Dark Vintage Antiquing Wax for an incredible transformation!

“This is my very first piece painted with APC! Bought this piece for $25 and it needed some love!”

Painted Dresser - Before

Adding Texture & Dark Vintage Antiquing Wax

Charlene used two popular American Paint Company colors from the main line; Treasure Box and Home Plate. Then, she added some texture with the Home Plate because she wanted to give it some more character.

Finally, the furniture was sealed with three thin layers of Top Coat and finished with the All-Natural Dark Wax to give it a more vintage appeal.
