There is nothing worse, than drawers that won't work.
On this piece, I wanted a few dings and dents, so I only repaired the big holes!
I use a dry paint brush to brush it off, and get in the crevices, then a tack cloth to finish it off.
thanks Michelle for that piece of advice!
Now the worst part is over and the fun part begins!
I rolled this with paint, then I went over with a paint brush.
I lightly distress it.
I always use the fine sand block to lightly go over it after I paint!
It gives it the smooth look your looking for!
Then I apply polyurethane with a sponge brush!
I love the color - Valspar Lake Breeze from Lowe's. I used the knobs I bought from TJ Maxx!
I also bought some wood knobs from Lowe's and painted them the same color, so as not to take away from the rosette knobs!
Then I take an after picture!
As you can tell I am not a photographer, but my daughter Erin is!
I am sure she shutters at my pictures!
One of kind, for sure!
Why would you ever buy a new piece of furniture when you can do this. . . .
I would love to know your tricks, or email me a picture of something you have painted!
Come on family and friends, I know your doing this!
