This dresser is a total showstopper! The client wanted it to go darker, so we found a beautiful inspiration piece with a stained top and painted body. For the top, I used two different shades of stain, then a stain with polyurethane, and finished with a wipe-on polyurethane. The wood grain is stunning! The body is painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite, lightly distressed, with two coats of dark wax.
