She needs to slow down. Now.
She has this really great double dresser—that just looks a bit too juvenile anymore. A perfect opportunity to make some fashionable changes! Just what I love to do—furniture makeovers!
So—–this is how it looked before. Simple white with some sponging, and (now missing) wood knobs. And, you know how little ones like to make their mark? Well, she wrote on it with pencil, pen, and even some nail polish. I thought it should be fairly easy to “erase” this stuff— —fool! OMG! Let’s just say I’ll be giving PAPER to some kids this Christmas!
I sanded and painted…..and sanded and painted…..and sanded and painted. And sanded and painted………..momma’s sponging kept bleeding through. After 5 coats of paint, we started to discuss “plan b.”
I kept it white, but made it a warmer, creamy tone that will go better with everything else in her new room!
Like every little girl, she loves pink and purple….(???) ….so I used a raspberry pink paint and a filigree stencil on the face to camouflage the bleed-through problem!
et voila! Simple and elegant for an 8yr old!
