From Miruna:

I’ve been wanting to use black chalk paint for a while, but could not find the right piece of furniture to stand up to the challenge. When I found this dresser online I was not very sure what to do with it, but I knew I loved it. So I bought it. But one thing was sure, I was not going for a subtle makeover. Black was the way to go, but the wow factor was a bit harder to decide. Gold was the answer, faux gold leaf to be exact. It truly makes a statement. All the metal accessories are new and so are the wood knobs that I painted black.

Thank you Miruna! More of Miruna’s style on her blog.
