Well, I am still working on the "big" project, and have to admit,I am stalling on it, so I pulled out something else to work on. I've had this dresser for quite a few years, we bought it from a friend's yard sale because the kids needed it, however, it never made it into their bedrooms, not sure why not, but it has been waiting for a paint job for a long time. We paid more for it than we should have, but we didn't want to insult our friends.
I sanded it down and spray painted it with Valspar Satin in blue, and the drawers with white (can't remember which brand). I first used heirloom white, which I love, but against the blue it looked yellow, so I painted over it.
I downloaded an image from the internet and sized it on my Silhouette cutter and cut it out to use it as a stencil (I used outdoor vinyl, for those of you who care about that kind of thing) Sprayed it with Krylon silver. Agonizing over which way I was going to go with this probably took me longer than anything else. Some projects fall together quickly and sometimes there are so many ways I could go with a project, and it's hard to decide. If I had 10 of these, they would all look very different.
I added some beautiful crystal knobs that I picked up on sale somewhere, maybe when I was in Missouri. I'm not sure if they are staying or not, I love them, but maybe too much to use them, I may have to hoard them for a while :)
I plan to antique this piece, but I only had one can of blue paint, and i got pretty good coverage, but the sides need a little more. I can't wait, so I'm showing it to you now.
