Isn't She Lovely? Furniture Makeover Using Chalk Paint

Well, maybe she isn't yet - but she's gonna be. I picked this dresser up at Goodwill about a year ago for $25 and thought it had much promise.
 It looked as if someone had attempted to do something with it, but I am not really sure what, other than paint it ugly brown, rough it up, then put cheap drawer pulls on.  I felt sorry for her and knew her potential. Unfortunately, she sat lonely and dejected down in the basement this last year until I could find the time to do something with her.  Hello summer!

See the beautiful detail around the top?  

And pretty little bun feet?

I have been working the last few days - transforming this Plain Jane into something more worthy of her features.  

Check back tomorrow!  It is the opposite of "puttin' lipstick on a pig"...whatever that would be.
