Oh, the wonder of Chalk Paint!
My weekend project was to transform my old 1980's dresser. I thought I could....so I did! I made homemade chalk paint by adding Plaster of Paris to latex paint and it works like a charm. I painted the dresser with no priming or prepping whatsoever, then sanded/distressed it, and finally waxed it. Oh, and I added legs to it to raise it off the ground and give it a better "look". I haven't decided what type of hardware I'm going to put on it yet - probably a mixed bag of antique hardware. Before:
