First I was given this dresser and although it looks plain, I am excited to give it a new look. Here is where I am on it.
I sprayed a mix of black and silver on it but I made a HUGE mistake in doing so. I didn't sand the surface enough before spray painting and putting the stickers on so when I peeled the stickers off it ripped more of the paint off than I was hoping for. SAND, SAND, SAND!
Then I painted a couple of coats of white chalk paint over all the dresser and the drawers.
The bottom 2 drawers you can see have a more solid color after the second coat of paint.
After it had dried I peeled the stickers off and up peeled too much paint. I am going to grunge up the paint a ton and add some color and embellishments to do a chic, teenage, urban look for the finished product. I have a long way to go on this piece but I think it will look cool when finished. Most of my concentration is on a headboard bench right now so this is just what I am working on when I take a break from the bench. I have to have several things going at once or I get a little buggy. I compare it to school, you can't just do math all day, you need to mix it up with English, exercise and art class. Free pieces I can have fun with is my mental down time. Thanks for checking out my projects!
