If you've bought any furniture from me, or if I've inspired or helped you with any projects, send me pictures!!! I want to see it!! You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or my personal e-mail (if you have it;) or on Facebook. I'm loving seeing how you guys are displaying my furniture! I'm like a proud mama.
Common questions about this dresser:
"How did you make it look old?"
I antiqued it with sand paper.
"How did you make it look like the paint was peeling?" "How do you make it look chippy?"
I randomly rubbed vaseline on several different spots before I painted it with red paint, once the red paint was dry I rubbed off the vaseline.
"How did you glaze it?"
I like to glaze by buying water based stain. Once the paint is completely dry, I sponge brush the stain onto the furniture, then wipe it off with a damp rag.
"How do you keep the paint from peeling off?"
I seal in my paint with polyurethane. If I'm painting with dark colors, I use oil based polyurethane. If it's a light colored piece, I use water based polyurethane.
