After a couple weeks of not support anything, I was profit really annoyed because 1.) I really wanted to take the tv down, and 2.) I wanted our burning room to keep advance in the right direction.

Thanks, Dezzy! I used the paint sprayer to picture the dresser. I used the cheapo roller to paint the boards that made up the shelf because I had painted the dresser with the sprayer days before and it wasn’t worth it to me to break out the sprayer, mix the paint, and use the sprayer so I opted for the cheapo roller. I used the same primary and thinner (Penetrol). Hope that makes sense!

Hi Chelsea, I was reading your set about your dresser-shape-TV console and I had a few inquiry. Let me start by proverb the piece looks beautiful! I paint a lot of bedding out here in California and failure to more about the Floetral and Penetral (sp?). Now, I do have Floetral in my “drive kit”, but I have to take I don’t use it that much. I guess my question is this…When your painting and or primering do you imitate the manufacturer’s directions for the additive exactly or do you “eyeball” how much you pour in? For exmaple, I’m generally painting a credenza and I pour my primer into a tray without measuring how much I put in. How exact are you with mensurative the positive to the paint/rprimer ratio? In that same set, I also noticed that you painted the dresser with a sprayer. Me and the sprayer have not been good friends. I bought one from Home Depot to use with our air compressor and had terrible hap with it. Could you tell me a bit more going the Harbor Freight one you have? I have a Harbor Freight right around the corner from me. Just perplex onto your blog today and loved looking at all your re-do’s. I will determinately add your blog to the please of blogs I recite. Thank you, Katherine

Step 5: Paint!Show All Items Decided to do the majority of the dresser in a creme, with atrocious hardware and black shelves. Definitely easiest to paint the dresser with the shelves out, lots of flat areas to hit with the roller.  Shelves got painted while outside, both sides to keep it looking as neat as possible.

I went yesterday to our local Salvation Army Store and found a dresser I thought I could transform into a TV consist. My measurements of one respective piece would business out for me, but I noticed that they have a 25% off sale on Fridays (the day following my visit!) It was intense at $29 So, when I left to visit the next office, I took a moment to get some Pinterest ideas for what I had in mind. Your piece was the third one I inspection. I started skimming through, but then – WAIT!! Back up, isn’t that the VERY SAME PIECE I just saw at Salvation Army?????? I couldn’t believe my eyes! I had other errands to run, but thought I’d be back the next morning to get it. Of course, I couldn’t sleep much at all, annoy that someone would snag it from underneath me before I could get back. Yippeeee! It was there again this morning, so I bought it and brought it Seat, but first it needs an “airing out” because it smells strongly of cigarette quiz, and I’m allergic to it! I am so anxious to get started, but it will need to sit for a age or two with coffee beans inside to try to get rid of the smell before I can get started. I imagine the refinishing process will help a lot with that, but the raw wood inside will need some help.

That’s one of my favorite stuff about DIY — every project comes with a story and a lot of pride (and memories of the more disastrous elements, like the blobby holes in the back of the dresser and how many coats of paint it took, tend to wane away readily).

Allyson. I checked out the hutch and again, you did a extraordinary jab. The piece that I am redoing is very honor and it is not as tall as a regular armoire. I can’t even say if it is 100% wood, but my next topic is, did you prefer the method you used on the hutch with the chalk paint, or your dresser turned console painting method? I don’t poverty to do a ton of sanding, but I know that I am going to have to break the original paint surface to get the paint to adhere. Your advise is appreciated.
