From bland Ikea dresser to kiddy delight
Materials: Rast chest of drawers
Description: This started life as a paint job gone horribly wrong. Eventually, after I hid the thing in the closet for months, I decided to give it a second try.
I sanded down the whole thing to get rid of the bad shellack job (not mine), then gave it 4 coats of paint and one coat of clear lacquer. I primed two of the drawers and covered them with fabric using Mod Podge Hard Coat. I also covered the top of the drawer pulls with scraps of other fabrics.
It went from "hide in the closet" to "kid's delight".
You can see the step by step process here.
