Yay! I just finished painting a dresser for my oldest sons room! What a fun piece, I showed it awhile back, do you remember what it looked like before? Here it is!
I just love little pops of red in my sons room, so I knew I wanted to include this on the dresser somewhere. I chose this paint for the project.
First I primed the whole dresser in Kilz. See all primed up!
Then I started spraying the drawers. I kind of hit a snag, for some reason my primer was a little rough this time and I didn't like how it looked when the drawers were covered. So then I zipped over the whole thing with the sander. I really liked the look of the red sanded a bit, and the couple of drawers that weren't done yet! I didn't want to paint them, they looked so cute!
So of course I left them! Then I painted the dresser. You know my
obsession love with numbers right now, I had to add some to this beauty! I lined up my stencils numbers and had my son pick out four of his favorite numbers. Then I lined them up and painted them on the dresser.
Once I was done I knew it still was missing something..
The top was just too white, don'tcha think? Out came the stain to fix that up a bit. Here is how it turned out!
Here are some other snid-bits of the little mans room. He really loves camo, so I had to add this little feature wall! These were just hand drawn and then painted in.
Here is his name wall art. These are made from the inexpensive wood frames and letters from Joanns, and some scrap book paper. I had to add twine to hang them, and then my little pop of red with the pins.
I think the men in my family would not be happy if I didn't support the favorite team, ya know? Go Ducks!
Hope you like it!
