I've been asked over and over to "please tell me how you did that - I have one just like it I want to redo". Well here it is. How I did that! I purchased this really great old furniture set, a vanity, matching high boy and dresser. I love the set but boy was it in poor condition.
Then the little decorative brackets were missing so a quick little scroll saw and wella two new brackets - now you can purchase these at Home Depot so no worries there. Lucky for me the mirrors were in good shape. The middle one was removed to work on seperately.
Now first the sanding - I use an orbital sander. I find it fast and easy and it doesn't have to be perfect, just a quick sand unless you have some stubborn areas. Then a damp cloth or tact cloth to clean off the sawdust and you're ready to paint.
I use sponge brushes that way I don't leave any brush strokes. I can also get a more even coat on with them and the sizes are made just right for all those nooks and crannies. I use the ones in the packages from Walmart, they last the longest and there is a good variety of sizes and are inexpensive.
Wella - the finished product.....
