The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest launched another awesome competition with DecoArt, Inc.! The theme for this month was “Make A Statement” using chalk paint from DecoArt.

The before shot is missing 2 drawers because I ALWAYS forget to take a before shot. When I’m ready to paint watch out. I will procrastinate for like a year before I do something but when I’m ready to start, I just blow through it. But here she is. All antique-y and in pretty bad shape.

The dresser has a more petite style mirror that attaches.

I’ve used several DecoArt products and I’ve loved them all. In fact, I used their chalk paint before on several pieces and I liked the outcome. This time, I used Chalky Finish in Lace and I found it to be more difficult to work with. After two coats I felt like the coverage was spotty and did not offer an even color. In some places, the paint looked like a yellow-y white. I wasn’t a fan of doing a 3rd coat so I decided to make this my ultra distressed statement.

I actually like the way it turned out even though it wasn’t what I had in mind originally. Here she is ready for sale in my booth at Woodstock Market.
