Checking 'to do' items off our list, one of which
was touching up all the paint in our home. With little
fingers and tiny thrown toys at times, our walls had
a few dings that needed repaired and touched up.
This dresser had one of those beloved dings on the
top drawer and it has bothered me for over a year.
I already had the blue paint out to touch up the
large horizontal stripe that goes around our sons room
and decided to 'fix' up their plain jane white dresser
from IKEA while I was at it.
I eyeballed my first tape line, then grabbed a ruler
for the second to make sure I was even from each end.
A little hole filler - no sanding on anything - a foam
brush and paint.
First coat...I waited until completely dry. I set a mini
fan in front of the dresser to help quicken my drying
time, since my todo list seemed miles long, isn't it
and Third Coat...you can still see a bit of the ding
but it's not as noticeable now that the dresser is painted.
I wanted to make sure the paint would hold up to my boys,
hence the third coat.
Peeled off the tape and am in LOVE with the new look!
Have you painted anything in the new year?
