  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your white hutch! Beautiful!
    And now I have a random request for advice: I am getting ready for my first chalk paint adventure (YAY!) and it's a big one. I'm planning to repaint my bedroom dressers. I have one long dresser (about 6') and a tall armoire that I plan to paint off white with a dark chocolate top. I don't want to run out of paint mid-project but I also don't want to be left with a ton leftover. I'm planning on using the Americana brand chalk paint. How much do you recommend purchasing? Thanks in advance!!

    1. Thank you Tina, my white hutch has always been one of my favorite pieces! To answer you question: I really don't know. Sorry, but it all depends on size of dressers, how thick you apply the paint, how many coats you will need to cover to your preference, etc. You can purchase larger tubs of Americana decor paint on Amazon. What I usually do with large projects is paint the first coat and then add a little water to the paint container to thin it (just a bit, like maybe 1-2 Tablespoons). The thinner paint will go on easier, and just might stretch your paint a little further. I would probably purchase the larger tub of paint (16 oz) for each dresser just to be on the safe side. I find when I paint dark furniture a lighter color, that I typically need to do 3 coats of paint. If you like a more distressed look, with some of the original showing through, you could get by with less. Good luck!!
