From Bleak to Chic: Furniture DIY

One of my girlfriends purchased this dresser at Goodwill for $24.99. I'm going to re-paint it and change out the knobs.  This will be my first furniture DIY so I hope that everything turns out okay.
I'm going to store the dresser in my living room because I need the extra storage space.

I purchased the knobs at Hobby Lobby during their big sale a couple weeks ago.  The knobs were $3.99 each with 50% off.

Currently, the dresser looks cheap and old but I am determined to turn it into a masterpiece.
I still can't decide on a paint color. I know for sure that I want to use the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint like my friend Jessica did here. I'm thinking about picking the Versailles color IF the paint store can mix in a little yellow to make it more of a mustard color.

P.s.- I'm watching alligator hunters on tv and these guys are crazy....I want to stop watching but this show is sucking me in.
