I woke up this morning and thought - ok what'll I write about today ?
And then it dawned on me.............
This blog is supposed to be about furniture makeovers, isn't it LMHO !!!
All of last week took up givesaway and I WANNA live there Wednesday - and because I have the memory of a gold fish ....................
Here we go...............this is the best before I can find of this.
I decided to paint it with Annie Sloan Pure White- but because this little dresser doesn't have any details at all - it looked very blah...............so I decided to add a little pizazz by using a graphic from the
The Graphics Fairy
Here's what I chose ( been loving this particular one for a lonnnng time and was so happy to find the perfect piece to use it on !!! )
cut it down to size
and applied it to the drawer fronts with Artisan Transfer Gel - I brushed the printed side with the gel -
turned it over - placed it where I wanted to go - brushed the gel on the top side and let it dry dry dry
( the MOST important part of the procedure really ) DO not attempt to do this before 4 hours )
you can quicken it up by blowdrying it - but personally I find it best to just let it dry on it's own.
PRETTY SCROLLS ALL IN A ROW
I didn't take any photos of the next step - you can check out my tutuorial HERE if you'd like to see that part
( warning - it's not pretty )
The graphic was a little light for this particular dresser - I wanted the black to really pop - so I went over the entire scroll work with my black sharpie - I may have overdone it - not sure - but this one is being used
as MY end table so it's ok if it's not perfect lol
I'm putting this one in just to make you think your eyes are going on you !!!
Meet the Guinea Pig !!! This little dresser has been changed out so many times that it's become my testing
dresser for any new thing I want to try out.................
You were expecting knobs too?
I'm really not sure what I'm doing for knobs - so for now this is all ya get LOL
Update - handles are on !!!
Not sure if those are the ones that will stay - but they're the ones I have for now :)
Have a wonderful Sunday all!
Did anyone notice my new water mark?
Does anyone think I should do a tutorial on it - or is that so 2012???
