|This is a little bit of the bed that we liked at PHL. |
I was a bit sneaky and took the pic on my phone.
Not sure if you're allowed to take photos in store...
|Bed in white at PHL|
So our bedsides that are chipped and chewed - by our oldest child (not the dog) when he was getting teeth are getting painted and revamped to match the bed.
|Bedside - Before|
|Chest of Drawers - Before|
|New handles - ebay!|
So I began by taking the ipod out to the garage (I must have music to sing along to - Glee is the flavor of the month at the moment).
I cut some moulding and I liquid nailed it to the drawer fronts of the bedsides.
Then I puttied, sanded, primed and painted them.
|Spray paint gives a smooth finish,|
no brush marks and lines.
|This yellow thing is so handy. |
My finger was getting so sore pushing
the nozzle thingie.
So now I'm waiting for them to dry so I can make the final finishing touches with some sandpaper and then put on the handles. Hoping to have them in our room tonight, I'm so over having a cardboard box for a bedside for the past week. So glad today has been a perfect Spring day so that I can paint!
