I'm reposting this dresser I did for Lil D a long while back. The CSI project is having a paint challenge, and I thought I would join in the fun. Head over and link up for favorite paint project, or take a look around and get inspired!
Mr. T has had this dresser for about 10+ years. When Lil D was ready to move out of the baby room and become a big boy...I decided to give him a new dresser.
(sorry, it's the only before pic I have of it)
after a good sanding and a coat of primer...I gave it 2 more good coats of semi-gloss white.
Then I painted the door fronts with apple green (craft paint...I don't remember what brand).
I found the wood cars at Joanns and painted them and hot glued them to the top drawer.
Then found a font I liked and printed it in the right size. Using carbon paper, I traced the words onto each drawer and then filled them in with 2 coats of a paint pen.
here it is:
I still just love it! and Lil D loves to read all the letters...even "pretends" he knows what they say:)
