Debonair, stunning and regal are words that might describe our 1930s highboy dresser. That is thanks to Annie Sloan’s Old White chalk paint.
At the time I was trying to decide if I should paint it or not and hadn’t tried chalk paint yet. Well, I’m so glad I did! Not only do I love painting with that paint.

I can’t wait to show you a ‘before & after’ of the bedroom, but I’m still working out some last minute decorating ideas.
