Queen Anne's New Look

I posted the "before" of a Queen Anne style dresser that I was working on last week.  It was rehabbed for a customer to complement the Bonne Nuit chest that I did a couple of months ago.  Here's the update:

Since this the style of this dresser is totally different than the Bonne Nuit chest, it was rehabbed to complement, rather than compete with the chest.  Primed first to prevent any bleed through, the body of the dresser was done in HM chalk paint (Behr, Blue Fox) and the drawers are done in HM chalk paint (Behr Flint Smoke, lightened with Burnished Clay).  Top was sanded to remove the peeling finish and scratches, then stained with Minwax Jacobean and protected with 2 coats of polyurethane.  The body and drawers were waxed with American Decor's Creme Wax first, then aged with APC's Clear Wax, tinted with Graphite Craft Paint. 

The typography on the dresser (Sleep Tight) was chosen to also complement the Bonne Nuit (Good Night) chest.
