Old White Rounded Dresser

A couple months ago I went to pick up a few things from a guy off of Craigslist.  We got to talking to him and found that he went to auctions almost every weekend.  He offered to pick for us when he found good deals he knew we could refinish and sell.  He is an awesome guy who we trust and he doesn't get mad if we don't take an item he has.  The other day we filled up the truck with picks from him.  Here is one of the dressers he had.  We couldn't pass this cute dresser up.  
We loved the rounded drawers and the fact it was in great shape! Isn't it neat how rounded the drawers are?
We had so many colored pieces for the show that we really needeing something neutral.  We always try to have a piece for everyone who loves our booth.  We ended up painting her in Annie Sloan Old White and added new bronze knobs.  
I love how chalk paint distresses!  I must say I was skeptical. We thought we can distress a piece and give it the "old world" look with normal paint.  We can come close with other paints but Annie Sloan hits the nail on the head, for sure!  
I apologize for the front yard shots.  I was getting them loaded into the truck for the show and didn't have time to stage them.  14 more days and I will be working for Willow Creek full-time and will have a lot more time to stage, paint, decorate, blog and sell a lot more.
What do you have planned for the 4th? 

We are in a big show this weekend so we will be working hard to get ready but of course we will take time to be with our family and be thankful for our independence!
