I couldn't decide what to do with this little dresser until I saw this fantastic paper at the craft store. 
 I loved the antique-iness that the paper already had.  Old news ads..layered old typewriter font.. just really Cool!

I've had this piece done for several weeks now & was just waiting for the Vintage-Looking glass knobs that I like to use on the Antique-Makeovers to get it in.  I was at the store today & they finally restocked! .. I snatched up every one of these & quickly rushed home to put together the finished look.  So Excited to share...

Painted the sides in a Chalky distressed Black.  The the drawer fronts so much Character that the plain white sides looked just that...Plain.

Nothing is Normal or Easy with any Make-Over that I do.  Every piece has "baggage" and some problems I have to troubleshoot and this one was no different.  The dresser was old & needed lots of cleaning up so I painted the drawers inside & OUT.  I slide the nice clean drawers back in their place, anxious to see the progress & guess what??.. STUCK!!  I finally got them all out & because they slide wood-on-wood I took my trusty side kick (Power Sander) & zipped all the paint off, then waxed all those spots by rubbing canning/jelly wax that you can get at the grocery store.  I am happy to report that all that worked!

Chippy distressed top with accent piece along back to tie in the sides.
