French Dresser Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

2nd October 2015

I decided to give this little french dresser a makeover using Annie Sloan Chalk paint.  The dresser color is Annie Sloan “Duck Egg Blue” which is a beautiful fresh blue color and the hardware is Annie Sloan “Arles” which is a mustard yellow color.  The inspiration for the color palette was the fabric I used to reupholster these cane chairs, since this sweet dresser will be used as a sideboard in my living room re-design.  I thought the color combination was modern and a little bit funky.

I also had to replace one of the drawer glides that was completely chewed up and broken.

I did lots of research online on drawer track replacements and I figured out that you can not find an exact replica of track seen above.  Instead, you have to purchase a complete replacement drawer track for that particular drawer.  I purchased this one from Swisco.com.  If you are not sure which replacement system to purchase you can email them a photograph of your current track system and they will recommend a replacement for it.

It is not the best drawer system, but it is better than a drawer that just falls out.  Here is a close-up of the hardware.

I used some Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White to add some dimension to the detailed areas of the dresser to make them pop.

I am happy with how it turned out, I really love the duck egg blue!

    What a gem! It looks so much better after a coat of one of my favorite colors. Thanks for sharing your dresser makeover at Vintage Inspiration Party.
