This was the dresser that I got when I made the mistake of walking away from the bedroom set for 10 seconds. It was really sturdy and made of solid wood.
Here is the before.
I mixed up a cup of homemade chalk paint with Behr's Cottage White. I gave it two coats and then I sanded down the top of the desk. It was my first time staining the top. It was much easier than I thought. I guess I expected it to take hours... I used Minwax's Honey in a satin finish.
Here is the after.
I actually had different plans for the drawers. I wanted to decoupage the drawers with paper, but for some reason it bubbled up, so I gave up and ripped it off. I think I just need to buy Modge Podge. I went cheap and tried to use the homemade stuff.
I Just bought a new bedroom set. I don't know what color I want to paint it. What colors sell best for you? I find that if I stick to black, white, and grey, they sell a lot faster. My blues always seem to take forever.
