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.
Here is the before photo of the dresser:
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!
