My step daughter is getting a 'room-re do' for Christmas. In August we got her a bunch of the bedding and such that is always out for the college kids. She got new curtains, an end table, sheets, rug, comforter, etc. Her mom and step dad got her a new bed (black sleigh bed), and it was my task to 'refinish' her dresser. It's a good piece of furniture but had been a bit beat up over the years (I think it was her mom's). Her whole room is going to be black, purple and pink. I had sanded it a few weeks ago, but had been putting off painting it.
It has been SOOO cold here, and so
a) we didn't want to paint in in the freezing garage
b) we weren't completely sure the paint would paint good in the freezing garage
So, we made the kitchen our new work space (thank goodness for heavy duty plastic drop cloths!) We had spray painted the sides of the drawers and insides, just so there wouldn't be a stark contrast of the black on the outside, and then then light brown sides.
