Vintage Tallboy Makeover - Before and After

Found this vintage tallboy dresser a couple of weeks back in perfect working order - with dovetail drawers!
I painted it a teal color with a homemade chalk paint mixture. 

Then I wiped the entire surface area with Minwax stain.
  I let it sit for about 10 minutes before wiping it off with a wet towel. 

Even though the stain was a good enough seal for the chalk paint, I went ahead and sprayed the entire piece with Varathane for added protection against scratches.

I love how it turned out gray-blue.
What do you think?
