This Waterfall chest of drawers got an awesome makeover and new life as a numbered military dresser with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Olive and Graphite.

It was quite sad when I got it and have several dings and dents and even a huge hole in one side that I had to patch up before I painted.
"Olive" by Annie Sloan is the perfect military green. So she got a fresh coat all over and some light sanding on edges for detail distressing.
I then stenciled the numbers using Annie Sloan Graphite Chalk Paint, which is my go to for most stencils. It was perfect for this military style.
I decided to update the drawer pulls to match the style and the new ones are an aged pewter. A light coat of clear wax and it was ready for a new home!
I love waterfall chest makeovers. Their style and sturdy build is perfect making for large storage with deep drawers which makes them perfect to update and customize to your own style!
