I first brought it home in November, I think, and gave it a good sanding. At this point, it was all in pieces, because my father-in-law had taken it apart in preparation for regluing it. It was fairly rickety to start out with. He didn’t end up regluing it until just before Christmas. So, last week I brought it home and got to work.
I painted it in the same manner as I did her desk. I wasn’t thinking I would paint the inside of the drawers on this one, because they were in decent shape, but then Hannah asked me if I would. And honestly, I think it just brings the whole dresser up a notch from ordinary to perfect for a young teenage girly-girl.
I used Behr’s Premium Plus Paint and Primer in one in a semi-gloss tinted with Glidden’s Onyx black. That shade of black is black, but if you are looking for a black-black it’s maybe not the shade you want to go with. I wish I could tell you the shade of pink, but it was a mistint. The handles were painted with Rustoleum’s “Dark Steel” spray paint. It’s lovely paint and goes on like a dream.
And to give you a bit of a teaser, here’s a sneak peak of a desk that I started just before Christmas. I still have to put the finishing touches on it. Hopefully soon I will be able to show it to you! I love how it’s turning out.
