storage-drawer transformation




This is a little wooden chest of drawers I bought from hobby lobby. I took the "before" picture after I removed the hardware, but you can see it sitting in the background-it was a dark bronze kind of color. I sanded it, primed it with kilz latex primer, and then painted the outside part with white (actually parchment which I guess is slightly off white) and then the pairs of drawers with pink, orange and green paint. All of my colors are the little samples you can get mixed at Home Depot. I added one coat of polycrylic since the paints are all a bit flat. Then I spray painted the hardware with white. Much more cheerful! Now to decide what to store in it...
