Get her home and ditch the glass. Have the help (hubby) drill a hole into the back for possible cords and go to my fav chalk paint recipe! I grabbed $10 quart of paint from Lowe's and had the plaster of paris on hand! Time to get busy!! After my 1st coat here she is......
|look at those velvet lined drawers.....I could weep from joy!|
Remember the best thing with Chalkpaint is no sanding or priming. Be still my heart I am in love with this stuff! Now...I did have a bit of splintering that I filled with wood putty and smoothed out and the chalkpaint slid right over it all! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! The blue was a little off from the hues in the office so I added a lil creme to the chalkpaint and hit the second coat. I followed that up with some super shine!!! POLY!! Oh yeah, wear a mask when working with that stuff! PU! And, don't forget.....Fast, light coats. I did 2 coats and let her sit! Are you ready? She is not finished being dressed, and I had to put the components on the top because the kids regularly disconnect the playstation and I wanted to give them easier access sooooo....
Meet Blue Belle! My office cabinet:
|This drawer is everything! Hello!!! 10 rolls of wrap! Dreamy!!!|
She has a wrapping drawer and stores the sewing and painting kits below as well as packing and wrapping supplies. And.....well, isn't she just cute! I love her! And I love that for $40 I have a functional, fun piece that gives my space some order. So many times we wait for perfect or to have enough $$ or whatever it is we are waiting on.....I couldn't wait! I made a budget, did a lil looking, put in a lil elbow grease....and really love the result! Hope this inspires you to start a new project! Spring will be here before you know it! Real talk!
