Vintage Dresser Makeover

I finished the dresser! I think this is my favorite restoration by far. I love it! Remember the piece I found at The Salvation Army...

Beautiful but in need to some TLC!  So I sanded this one good!  It needed a heavy sanding to get all of the chipping paint off.  Once it was nice and smooth I primed it with spray Kilz primer.  I had a lot of paints here and there left over from rooms and other projects, so I mixed 4 different paints together to get a creamy, grey, beige.  Sounds weird I know but it's really pretty.  Here is how it turned out!

I love the way the colors in this room pull together so nicely.  Happy girl right here!
