Friends, I’m taking a little break from blogging for some R&R.
I have some awesome friends filling in for me while I’m gone though so be sure to make them feel welcome! Thanks so much, and I’ll see you all soon!
I’m Danielle from 2 Little Superheroes and I’m so excited to be over here at Girl in the Garage guest posting today for Jen. It’s my first guest blog post so I hope you like my little dresser makeover!
I am trying to go through my entire house and get rid of anything I don’t love. My house is way too small to have all this stuff in it that I don’t love.
So this week I tackled my sons dresser.
My inspiration for my dresser came from this amazing dresser transformation from Courtney at A Little Glass Box.
Sand the dresser.
Apply 2 coats of primer.
Add 2 coats of your base paint colour.
I had 3 drawers, and I started with the middle drawer (so that I could just use the middle drawer as my guide).
First I taped down the centre of the drawer.
Now decide on how wide you want your stripes. I decided on 2.5″. Then I just laid down my first piece of tape and played around with the angle I wanted.
Once you decide on that first angle just measure 2.5″ along top and bottom. Be sure to include taped lines that are also 2.5″ too. (Sorry my above diagram isn’t the greatest.)
Now use the base paint to paint over the tape lines.This will prevent your paint from bleeding under the tape. And will create perfect lines for you. Promise. Don’t skip this step, it’s worth it.
I lined up the next drawer and used the first drawer as my guide for the next stripes (so they’ll match up perfectly.
Now paint away.
Remove tape and admire those perfect lines.
Continue measuring, taping, and painting.
Thanks again Jen for letting me share my herringbone dresser!
