The dresser was an ugly yellow color with gold trim, and this weird shiny white top that almost felt like a dry-erase board.

We got the dresser ready to be painted by cleaning it off with a damp rag and taping the drawers. THAT'S IT. No prepping, no priming, no sanding. This paint is a Brown Paper Booth-er's dream come true.
We've read that the paint is a little thicker than latex, and that a little goes a long way and covers really well. We weren't sure about the dry erase board-esque top, but it turned out that the paint went on no problem. (Also, please excuse the terribly colored photos... We started painting this at 5 pm one day and finished that night! Too excited not to snap pictures in the bad lighting.)
We finished the main body of the dresser with just one solid coat, plus some touch-ups. Same for the drawers! We put the drawers in and she looked so finished already.
We still need to wax the piece to finish it off (maybe some dark wax in the carved details??), but other than that, here she is, in all her duck egg blue glory:
