So, its been almost a month in my new townhouse and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. A new chance to decorate, and of course I need some more furniture to fill the place!
And man, that down payment just hurts. So I love doing things cheap.
So I redo... that's just what I do.
Well here is another little guy I picked up from Kijiji, it was part of the set I posted earlier.
So first I just roughed him up -- an electric sander did the trick -- but I also had to use just some sand paper for the little parts I couldn't get to. I made sure to wipe off all the dust with a wet cloth and let it dry.
Then, I painted just a white primer over all of it.
And finally the 2 coats of regular paint...
As you can see -- what I did wrong on this one was use a roller that was for rough surfaces instead of smooth to semi-smooth, which I should have done -- so it left me all these bumps. Rookie mistake.
Eventually I evened them out but it was a real pain.
I really learned with both of these dressers that they are fussy little things! Each nook and cranny -- lots of prep work -- and all the little details really do count. When in doubt -- google it or ask someone that knows Don't just do it.
Now he's my buddy - holdin my jewelry for me. He's a real help and fits nicely into my nook.
