Farm Junk to Vintage Chic

I have been just itchin' to go junking or to flea markets! Spring is almost here... and so will be many shows. I can not wait! Check back to find out what I have found or where I will be going. People will be getting rid of their old junk which will be my new found treasures.

Here is a piece I found last summer (at a garage sale) that I repainted and added some glass knobs. On the top I added chalkboard paint... to write a menu on or a greeting for my guests. Yes.. I did paint it that way. The more distressed the more I like it =)

I dumpster dived last month, well not really, my neighbor left a pencil post bed in the alley and when she saw that I snagged them offered up an old dresser. I want to paint the dresser black because it is in bad shape. Can you offer any tips on painting furniture, do you sand? prime? matte paint? Thanks in advance!
