Several years ago I posted pics of my tween girl's bedroom. Tween girl is now driving and wanted something a little more grown up. She wanted to paint her dresser "grass green" and so I let her. (The color is grass stain from Lowe's) She used the same techniques and chalk paint recipe from when I did my side tables. She has never painted anything before and I think she did an excellent job.
One of these days we will get around to decorating the entire room and do some big reveal, but so far this is as far as we've gotten.
BTW: This dresser was mine when I was little and I think several of my sisters as well. It started as a fake dark wood veneer. Then my dad painted it white for my daughter, and now it's green.
