Dresser before and after

I finally have time to show before and after pictures of the small dresser in the twins room. I've had it done a while and it is wonderful for holding diapers and wipes! 

Here is the ugly before: 

I decided to paint it a neutral gray with an orange accent on the inside.  I made a chalk paint using latex paint and plaster of Paris. It painted and covered so nicely with no priming. I did two coats and sanded the edges so it would look old and not perfect. Once dry I used a soft wax to give it a shine and protect the paint.
