Waterfall Dresser

This dresser started out with the drawers covered in wallpaper.  I had to first remove the wallpaper, and then strip the drawers because underneath were thick layers of paint.  The top of the dresser had veneer which was in bad shape, so I had to get out my iron and scrape off all of it.  I used a lot of wood filler on this dresser.  I painted the dresser with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Graphite" and used AS dark and clear waxes and then stained the drawer fronts in Minwax "Dark Walnut".
