Primitive Dresser

I got home last night from FL.  When I left, it was 85 and sunny.  Got home to 0 and cloudy.  Yuck!!

I picked up this dresser off of Craigslist.  I had to start off by chipping off the old veneer on top.  Luckily the previous owner had already started this : )  I painted the body of the dresser in ASCP Pure White and the drawers in ASCP Louis Blue.  I distressed the entire thing and stained the top in General Finishes Shaker Maple.  I left the original hardware as-is.
