Hello out there in blogland, are you enjoying the fall weather? Today here in Pa. it was in the 50’s, great weather for
voting…did you vote today? I always do because I feel it is such a privilege, tomorrow it is supposed to be 65. I’m
going to enjoy it while I can.smile
Now on to my project here, at the beginning of October I was driving home from the store and on my way to my house
I noticed a small chest of drawers sitting at the curb so I turned the car around and was a little disappointed to
find out it was pressed wood but looking it over thought it was in decent shape so I loaded it up in my car and
went on my way. Here it is sitting after lifting it out of the car. It sat there until Stush came home…I know he
just shivers when he sees a piece of furniture sitting in his man cave when he pulls in.
Here is a better look, marked and scratched and a couple of bubbles on top that Stush sanded down as close as he could.
I sanded it all over and then primed it, one thing I do believe in is letting the piece dry between procedures, the next
day I painted.
But did the hardware first, they were in great condition.
I used Valspar’s Polished Silver with primer. Loved it… covered in practically one coat but I always do two.
At first I thought I’d put it in the entryway, a place to keep winter scarfs, hats and gloves but I think I need it more in the master
bedroom, I spraypainted the hardware white and added a protective coat on them also!
The top isn’t to bad, and anyway we are the only ones that are going to see it plus it was free!!!
I even lined the drawers with paper that I found at TJMaxx.
I really love it and the hardware too!
Are you ready for the before and after? To think it would be at a landfill instead of looking as pretty as she does. I think
I’ll call her Gidget.lol I think I’ve caught the bug of redoing furniture guys… lol
