Also, we’ve had some family medical emergencies. My grandfather is finishing up radiation this week, and my grandmother broke her hip and had surgery today. The surgery was a success! And my father in law fell and broke his nose and rib. So lots going on medically! Thankfully everyone is okay and I appreciate all of your kind thoughts and words. It’s just been a crazy few weeks !But I DID get my next dresser painted. I won’t bore you with the long details since you can see the long before and after below. Here is the dresser before:
And here it is after 2 coats of ASCP. I did the same as last time—sanded it a bit for distressing purposes and then put my same old Johnson’s wax on thinly. I thought I may have mixed too much water in with the paint as it seemed more runny than the last time I had used it. However, it still covered just as well as the first time. I also painted our nightstand but totally forgot to take pics!! Brain freeze!! I have to say that our bedroom looks so much brighter and pulled together.
And to top it off I still have 1/3 of the quart left. I can hardly believe it. I’m already planning for my next project, which will be to paint an old dresser in my spare room. I think I will try mixing the Old White and one of the blue colors together for a pretty turquoise. The possibilities with this paint are endless!!! I would highly recommend this to anyone, even those who aren’t experienced painters. Until trying this out, I had only painted walls and one piece of furniture ever. Now I feel like I can paint anything!
