Sleek Dresser Makeover

This dresser was given to me last week in need of a makeover.  It was a donation from a furniture company for a fundraiser for our local youth football league silent auction.  When it arrived it had been damaged on the top.  There was a rumor on the team that MJ could work some paint magic and fix it!  
I only had a few days so I had to work fast!  While waiting for the wood filler to dry, I picked a “glam” palette of Graphite and Paris Grey Chalk Paint™and some silver metallic paint I had.  
I painted the entire dresser with the Paris Grey Chalk Paint™ and then hit the decorative embellishments and hardware with the metallic paint.  

I painted the entire top with Graphite Chalk Paint™ and washed over it with some Paris Grey to soften the look.  I love how the Paris Grey grabs the imperfections and brush marks in the top!
And here you have it!  The glammed up after shot!  
I hope she found a lovely new home!
I can picture this piece in an entry way of a home with a fun lamp on top!

    Just found this post and I would also like to add a little metallic paint to give it that shiny pop of color; what ratio of chalk paint to metallic did you use?
