Okay so tomorrow I will be moving into my own little studio apartment. This will be my first time ever living on my own as in only me! :) I am super excited for this new chapter in my life and I seriously can't wait! :) So this past week I have been packing and preparing every thing to move! I have been wanting a black dresser for a long time and I have been looking every where... online, in stores, at thrift shops, and at garage sales but I couldn't find one I wanted!
So I decided to get a dresser I liked and paint it black easy right??? So on Wednesday the adventure began... Ashley and I went to ACE hardware and found someone to help us! :) I had no clue what I was doing so of course I asked for help first thing. A very nice man helped us out and answered all my silly girl questions. We left ACE with a can of primer, a can of black paint, stir sticks, and a paint can opener ready to start our mission. When we got home we brought the dresser downstairs and started painting.First we started with primer, I forgot to ask how many coats of primer I was suppose to put on so I posted a status of Facebook asking for help from my friends, some where helpful and some where not so much however they made me giggle! :) I finally decided to just put one coat of primer on a call it good! :) After the primer we had to wait for an hour before we could start actually painting it black..... so we waited! :) Then finally the time came!We put the first black coat on and decided that we need to do another one so guess what that meant ..... More waiting :)Now to tell the truth we where suppose to wait 2 - 4 hours to put on the next coat but I was not that patient. So after about an hour and a half we decided to start painting again! :) Once it was all done it looked so pretty and all we where waiting for where handles! :)So today I went to Home Depot and picked out the perfect handles! I am so proud of my dresser I think I might just become a dresser reduer and sell them.... Do you think anyone will buy them?? :) This was such a fun project! :) I am so happy that I took on this adventure! Now I know I can paint a dresser with out a mans help! :) *giggle*
