DIY Chippy Paint with Vaseline

Step 1

Find your dresser- Antique stores, Goodwill, the side of the road, a garage sale.  All theses are perfect for finding a good dresser.

I think I need a sign that says “Stop hard for free stuff,” free stuff is the best!

Step 2

Clean with blue Dawn Dish Soap and a damp rag. This works wonders for heavy grime. And sometimes with that free stuff, oh there’s grime.DIY Chippy Paint with Vaseline

Step 3

Next you’re going to want to remove the handles and soak them in Coke, if they are rusty, crusty, or tarnished. Otherwise they are ready for paint. I use chalk paint while doing this.

Paint as normal. Cover with Vaseline as well.DIY Chippy Paint with Vaseline

Step 7

Once dry, sand the spot where the Vaseline will chip off and look heavily distressed. You can use a hand held electric sander or just a hand sander. I think every girl needs a sander in her life.

Spray with Polycrylic. I use Krylon- non yellowing for long lasting results.
