My kids are the BEST (no sarcasm at all) helpers! They really are awesome! All sanded and ready to be primed.
Primed, painted (2 coats) and sanded AGAIN. Ready to be glazed
Some up close detail of the glazing. Awwww, I love this piece!!!
The hardware MAKES this piece. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
Ok, honestly, refinishing (is that a word??) this dresser was INTENSE!!! We're not just talking one coat of paint and voila! It was a step-by-step-by-step process. But it's DONE! and I LOVE it! (yes, I use the word love a LOT). I bought this paint in Utah. I had been searching for this color and I am SMITTEN with it! I was just waiting for the right piece to be worthy of this beautiful color. Doesn't it remind you of the beach???
I'll go through the different steps I used when painting this beauty...
Oh, and it's SO NOT perfect. Nothing I do is perfect. If you're looking for perfection, you've come to the wrong blog sista! (and yes, on ocassion I pretend to be someone else and use words like sista)
oh and another ps, my husband totally made fun of the name of my blog! "Painting in Portland? That's not creative at all." I wasn't exactly going for a grammy with the name, just going for something easy to remember. OK?? I love you honey, you know I do..
Wether you like this piece, love it or hate it, leave a comment PLEASE!! I want the feedback. Just be nice. ;)
