I love my little mouse sander :)
and I sanded the mess out of that thing- all those peeled edges... OFF!
Then I primed the whole thing with Krylon Primer Spraypaint- love this stuff.
I did find out, however, that when you shake it and little primer spots get on the wood, the base color doesn't necessarily cover up those spots :/
Oh look at my sweet companion that kept me company during the beautiful day:
This is Chaos... I wish he were ours. My husbands family went out of town and left him with us for a few days. He's too sweet and uber adorable.
Alrighty... back to the project.
Next I used Krylon Ivory and put a couple coats on:
Looking better already, huh?
I had a heck of a time getting the hardware off the drawer to spraypaint it... they screwd it in then glued the pieces together. My husband had to handle that one. :)
I had a frustration point with paint dripping but I just learned to take it slow and easy.
I tend to rush things. Whoops.
Next, I took Valspar Translucent Color Glaze:
and brushed several coats on to give it that antiqu-ey look I love.
I also spraypainted the hardware on the drawer with oil-rubbed bronze. Then stuck all the pieces back together...
Look at how beautiful she turned out!
I was jumping up and down!
My husband gave me a funny look.
But LOOK what I did for the FIRST time!
You're excited for me, right??
one more time...
and just as a reminder... here's the before and after!
I am so in love with this!
Keep watching... my spring break is filled with FUN projects!
Happy Monday everyone!
