Th Purple People eater- Dresser Redo

Featured #1 at:
Glitterglueandpaint



A friend of mine has a little girl, and it's time for her to graduate to a big girl room! So she gave me her old dresser and told me a couple shades of purple chevron please.


Of course I sanded and primed it. Then added a few coats of white paint.

Then it was Chevron time!
I was a little nervous about this. How do I make it straight??? So I made a stencil! Then just taped where the lines were.



This step took a little while to complete! Hand painting is tedious!


This took about 5 coats to get it the right shade.





Then added new hardware!


BIG GIRL DRESSER!!!



THANKS FOR LOOKING!

REMEMBER COMMENTS MAKE ME SMILE!

  2. Hi Shelly! Just hopped over to your blog and saw that you have two boys! I have one for now and LOVE being a boy-momma. It's the BEST and I would be a-ok if I only ever had boys. :) Anyway, I hope you'll stop by to follow my blog as I need more boy-moms with boys older than my Drew. I'm a huge believer in the power of mothers sticking together and giving/getting advice!! Can't wait to look around your blog more!

    PS – My May giveaway will be for a new blog design by my personal designer! Stay tuned if you're interested! Our Journey

  4. How CUTE!! I've always wanted to try a chevron, but haven't had the opportunity, yet. I want to do something fun for the bedroom we have for our grandsons, so I'm just going to come up with a plan. :)
