Chest of drawers, script writing redo.....



Happy Sunday everyone...I thought I would do a quick post and show you what I have been doing this past week. Of course I forgot the before pic! So, here is a small chest that had the same similar look.


And here is the redo...these pictures really are not to good either, I wound up putting the chest in my spare junk room, so I tried to crop out the distractions. First I sanded it down, (it had that 1980's slick finish look) next, spray painted 2 coats of primer, did a little more sanding and added a
chalk paint finish. I usually always use Annie sloan paint, but this time I used the color "her dainties" from Lowes. It covered real good.
I purchased the stencil from Royal Design studios. Which is actually what started all this...I just couldn't wait to use this stencil!
I think everything turned out well.


And of course...my "Ms Bingles" mode kicked in.... This little guy got glued on the front! It had a fake keyhole, so I just added him to that.



Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, what a great finish! I like the little dog - he adds whimsy to the piece.
