The drawers have two coats of Grain Sack because I wanted them to look a shade lighter than the rest of the dresser. I also wanted the drawers to have a little crackle on them so when I applied the second coat of Grain Sack I used my new heat gun to get the perfect crackle. I have wanted a heat gun for quite a while and this one came from Lowe's for around twenty bucks. While the paint was wet I turned the heat gun up to high and pointed it where I wanted crackle. I am really pleased with the result of the heat gun. I used Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Wax mixed with Antiquing Wax. This makes a gray wax that was perfect for this dresser. After the wax was dry I buffed everything with a soft t-shirt. Here are some pictures of the finished dresser.
