DIY: Painting Solid Wood Furniture White/ How to Distress White Furniture7:43 PM
Everybody loves a good before and after picture! Here are a couple for your viewing pleasure.
I used THIS tutorial, from back in the day, to complete both projects.
I added only one step. Before sealing the paint with the polyurathane, I decided to distress each piece with some 220 grit sandpaper. Oh, and I decided to go with a semi-gloss rather than a gloss. I kinda love how they both turned out. What do you think?
The piece above is in my little girl's bedroom. I absolutely love the glass knobs that I found on sale at Hobby Lobby!
Above, is a dresser that I refinished/stained over 6 years ago. It was, in fact, my very first refinishing project ever. Can you tell? Yes, yes you can. Thank the heavens for white paint!
