Here is my newest redo
So i bought this dresser about 1-2 years ago and it has needed a makeover bad!! i started out by painting a brown over it so the gold and yellow wouldn't show through to much.
then i put wax from a yummy smelling candle on the parts i wanted the cream paint to come off easily. the yummy part was just a bonus ;)
then i took 3 coats of creamy flat white paint (not chalk paint yet i had already bought the paint for this one a long time ago) to cover this bad boy!
*then i put a clear soft wax with a great brush. then sanded it and distressed it with both fine and rough paper.
Then i used dark soft wax (very little) just mainly getting it in the cracks and only doing a area of about 4 inches at a time so it wouldn't get to dark. and rubbing a lot with a old pair of tights haha.
here is the before picture ( probably the best before picture ever ;) i couldn't find the other one so you get this one of my newborn shoot of our cruz :)
Heres the after
