Here is my attempt at trying to redo a dresser I found on Craigslist for $20. The lady told me that it was covered in crayon and that the drawer bottoms would need to be re-glued, and she wasn't kidding. I wish you could see it better in the pictures, but the dresser pieces were hauled into a very confined space before I could properly document them.
I should have taken a picture of inside the cupboard door. White paint was just kind of splashed on the shelves and walls inside.
|I don't know why you can't see the crayon all over this drawer.|
|This wasn't the worst one.|
I spent one day sanding the crap out of the dresser. I spent another day painting and getting really frustrated. Another day was spent on the dresser by my husband to fix my goofs and fix the drawer bottoms. I have no idea what he did.
|The final product.|
What I learned:
1. I like to watch the paint machines mix colors.
2. Foam brushes are crap for smoothing paint into corners and around edges.
3. My husband is a better painter than I am.
4. Never paint anything outside if you care whether or not crappies float into the paint.
