Hi Painting Friends!
I have so much old furniture in my garage
just waiting for a new do.
It has been so cold out there
I haven't wanted to go out and paint.
But there's no stopping me
from bringing this large dresser
in the house!
I'll just set up shop in my living room
and give this large chest of drawers
some personality for a boy's bedroom.
This is such a nice large dresser.
Black to begin with which is always a nice basic.
But Paula wants some personality for her son's bedroom.
Because it has a shiney surface,
I hand sanded a little all over.
After wiping it down
I double loaded my paintbrush
with gray and blue semi-gloss.
Semi-gloss makes such a nice brush on finish.
I also like that some of the black shows through slightly.
Then I taped off a stripe and brushed in some gray
across the top reds and blues.
I chalked in the numbers from a template
that I sketched and filled them in with black paint.
I like the simple design...
separated gray and blue brush stroke,
varsity horizontal striping,
and stacked number styling...
Great for a boy's room of any age.
Heck, I even like this personality for my house
in any room.
Now that was fun!
Can't wait to be back posting about my next paint project.
I hope this gives you all some ideas
and inspiration for your own homes,
