So I went to Lowes, with the card board inserts so that there would be no doubt in the measurements that I had written down, and got all the bottoms I needed. I didn't splurge for the real ply wood. That ply wood sheet was like $30! These are $15 dressers! For a set of 3! So I got the fancy, faux ply wood that was only $8 a sheet. WOO! Then I went home and installed the bottoms. Then I waited 2 weeks before I decided to do anything else, because that's how I roll. (What? It's not like I'm on T.V. here) When I did muster up the gumption to do more, I decided it was time for paint. What kind of paint did I use? The free kind. Andrea had some white paint and I had paint color samples (that I got for free! Did I mention free?!).
Instead of typing the follow process down, there should have just been a video. Because it was hilarious. The drawers weren't really an issue, they went pretty smoothly. The dresser tho. That bitch took 4 coats of paint. And! When I was doing awesome detail work, the paint on the entire top of the dresser just peeled right off. Like an orange. Did I mention this was into the 8th hour of painting? Yeah....I had to walk away for the night. But the next day I did a couple of coats on the top and called it done. At least one of the three are. Ugh! There are 2 more! I quit. Just kidding. Maybe next weekend...Oh! Here are some before and after pics!
There it is. Standing there all coy and ugly.
My awesome photography skills people. The drawers are a mint green and the pull knobs are purple.
I was afraid my color scheme would scream, 'A 7 YEAR OLD GIRL PUTS HER CLOTHES IN HERE!' But I dig it. Suck it haters.
