I love the colors and the simple white, red, blue and gold on the hardware.
The dresser was in a great condition, Drexel, interesting drawers size. Perfect.
I lightly sanded it down, primed it and put a shellac coat on it before painting it with Annie Sloan old white(two coats). I wanted it perfectly ready and white before the decal placement.
Placed the decal(ordered from Amazon)
|I cut out the middle circle out, it's going to be painted red. |
I used a scalpel to cut out and separate the drawers and also to cut out the blue portion out. Left the white star portion on.
|The decal removed some of the paint, which it didn't matter, it's going to be painted blue anyway.|
After drying, I removed the decal from the star portion and was left with perfectly distressed star, didn't plan on it but so happy it happened.
Here it is after this
I finished it off by lightly distressing it and sealed it with two coats of water-based poly. The hardware was refreshed with Rub and buff in antique gold.
I love how it turned out and I'm even more happy to know there's a little boy with a smile on his face. And snap peas in his tummy.
Until next time my friends!
