Dresser Makeover and Giveaway

I found this three piece bedroom set earlier this summer. It is probably from the 30's according to my mom.
I love the vanity and the big round mirror, but the bed and dresser were pretty great as well.
The only thing I have finished so far is the tall checst. It had that real shiny finish that was flaking off badly and some veneer that was buckling. Perfect for the ASCP. I didn't even have to sand it, but I did glue the loose veneer down before painting.
Here she is before.  Really needed some help, huh!

And, here she is after two coats of ASCP in Old White. Mild distressing and one coat of wax later, she looks like a new model.

I love the trim and how it shows up after the distressing.
I have to get to work now on the other two pieces of the set.
Keep an eye out for the finished product. Here are the before pics.

I hope you like my painting projects and I love to hear from all of you.

Be sure to visit my giveaway for this apron, here.
You only have until midnight tonight to enter.
