Turquoise Dresser Redo

I found this dresser at a garage sale for $50.  I decided to paint it using Venetian Turquoise from Glidden.  I started by sanding everything down very lightly.  I took the hardware out and spray painted it black.  I then gave the entire dresser 2 coats of paint, and then let it dry.  I then painted some Miniwax Ebony stain over the top and wiped off using a wet rag. I didn't wipe the stain from the grooves because I thought it looked better that way. After letting it all dry, I put a coat of polyurethane over the top for protection. I love this color and I think I'll use it for future projects!
