Happy Sunday! Happily, though I am stressed out and nervous about finding a house, affording what we need, this weekend was busy and I sold a few dressers! Yay! Less to take with me, thank goodness! I have one last dresser project for you for a while… You guys will just have to bear with me as we go through this moving process. Hopefully you will stick around?
OK, well here’s hoping you stick around anyhow! As soon as we find a house, just think of all the projects coming your way- room designs, furniture rehabs, TONS of goodness. You just have to wait for it. But for now, I will share with you my last dresser for the time being. I found this guy the day before I flew to join my family at the beach. He was hiding in a back corner of Goodwill. I caught a glimpse and was quickly moving furniture out of my way. I took a look at the price tag which read, “$30”. I ripped it off and raced to the register, throwing old ladies with walkers, and moms with kids out of my way! Kidding. I wouldn’t do that. You know that, right?
Anyhow, I had to leave it in my car as I could’t bring it into the house myself, so it sat there in my car til we returned from the beach. Here is the before:
I knew I wanted to paint it a blue, but didn’t know what blue. I am also on a time crunch at the moment and just wanted to get it done without sanding or priming, so I wanted to use chalk paint. I didn’t have enough of any blues left. I mixed some greek blue with the mint green I had already mixed, and threw in some old white for good measure. All together, it created a very pretty dusty blue. He got two coats of that blue, then I distressed him, waxed him, and added his awesomesauce hardware back on. And here he is now…
