Ah, Spring! I love this time of the year when you can bring furniture outside and refinish it. It keeps the mess inside to a minimum.
Per my previous post, I sanded, primed and applied a base coat of paint lighter than the top coat. In all I have 5 coats of primer/paint. I chose to do it this way as I knew I wanted to distress it and wanted the base coat to peek though. Once it was all dry, I sanded the edges and areas that would wear from normal use.
So...I knew I wanted to paint it pink. J received a jacket from one of her aunt's at Christmas and I really love the colour so I brought it in and they were able to colour match it for me.
We bought the dresser for $30 and picked up the paint this morning for $10. We used the glass knobs from J's current dresser. All in all, it is was fun do do and didn't cost a great deal of money. I knew it was all worth the work when J said it was pretty and that she loves it!
