So here is the dresser I told you I did for Ella's room. I painted the above wood shelf to match the paint I had used on the dresser.
THIS is what it looked like BEFORE!!! HID- E - OUSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
But this is what I fell in love with!! The ornate handles and drawers.
But since the top was that faux wood laminate stuff, I went and got some of this stuff to rub on the top. That way it doesn't etch that shiny top that you will see it come through the paint. This takes that sheen off so that the paint sticks. I really was happy with how it worked.
Here is the dresser getting primed in the garage, before the snow started flying.
And here it is distressed and waxed with the mirror glass spray on the handles to give them a vintage look. I just love how it turned out and you can see the rest of ther room transformation HERE.
