Pinterest. So many boards full of DIY projects, we can all easily do…right? I have a brain. I’m somewhat creative, and moderately artistic. I’ve pinned thousands of amazing before and afters of refurbished furniture. Why not finally take a stab at it??
It all started a few days ago when a used dresser-priced just right, popped up on my local Facebook yard sale page. “Now is my chance to finally have a project! This is going to be awesome. Not only awesome, but the best ever.” I think, bragging to myself. I successfully purchase the priced just right dresser, and bring it home, and place in garage (among our growing pile of junk). I decide to transform priced just right dresser into my 4 year old son’s dream super hero dresser (or as dreamy as a dresser can be at least).
I start brainstorming with my 4 year old, and we decide to go with DC comics theme-Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Robin, and Flash. “Ok, Yay! Let’s do this! Wait, do I need to sand this? What kind of paint do we use?? Primer? Ugh.” I start to realize I might be in over my head. I’m a total amateur. It’s too late now, though. Four year old super hero enthusiast is now expecting it since I opened my overly confident mouth. I decide to just wing it. Paint is paint, right? We head to Walmart, and I pick up bottles of acrylic paint, and some brushes.
I decide to go back to the knobs later on. Through my research, I’ve learned I must sand dresser. I start sanding. This part sucks and is boring…
Finally, everything is sanded and I wipe down dust off dresser. I realize I do not want to paint this whole thing with tiny paint brushes and matte acrylic paint, so I head out in search of spray paint.
At the moment, drawers and rest of dresser are outside drying. I’m not sure where to go from here but I will post my finished product when I’m done! Suggestions are welcomed!!
