I took some photos of the process this time -
Here is the dresser drawers painted ASCP Old White - with black stickers in place ( I kind of like this particular contrast - maybe the next one!!! ) I used 4 different sizes of stickers for this one -
Cities of the world - tried to squeeze as many as I could onto this baby - Montreal is my home town
so it was the first one I placed - and then started feeling guilt about the ones I left out - now how ridiculous
is that??????????????? that's why there's little bitty ones places sporadically -
I should really see a doctor I think -
So once those black stickers are all painstakingly put in place - I simply painted over the
entire surface with a diy chalk paint - the color is called Onyx.
Once the top coat is dry ( barely ) I start lifting the sticky letters off - any smudges or little flaws
can be touched up with a small artist brush................... and Voila - you have your subway art.
letters against the almost black dresser - crisp -
but I was talked into distressing it -
I cannot express enough how doing this like therapy for me - very very relaxing.
So here it is now
My Citizen of the World.
Tall, Dark and handsome
I love how masculine this piece is - nice change from all the girly
stuff I tend to gravitate towards -
What do you think - should I not have sanded it?
Should I sand it more?
Should I leave it alone?
Do you simply not give a damn either way because you're fed of me posting these
You can see the N.Y subway dresser HERE
Have a good one all
