So this would have been a GREAT tutorial, except that the "before" images were taken so long ago that I accidentally deleted them from my hard drive. *insert mad face* Has this happend to anyone else?! Luckily I am so happy with how it turned out, I have no reason to pout about it. Below are a few images and brief instructions.
First, I sanded for over an hour because there were 3D bows across the top, along with flower decals on the drawers. Then I touched up the areas with some white paint. I wanted the drawers to have a subtle difference (dileberated for months) until last weekend I had an epiphany with the cream lace. Perfecto! Add some modge podge and a good trimming.
The cream and white needed the compliment of colored knobs. Using acrylics, I painted the teal gray and then sanded them down to keep their antique look. Finish with cotton stalks and a lovey dovey print. Wham > from little girl to glam in two afternoons. Thoughts? To feminine for the husband? Or worth it?
