Stripping it was much more work than I thought it was going to be. I spent two WHOLE days for the entire process and it was back breaking! But I have the whole process down so on the tutorials page I'll post up how I did it. Heres the after stripping:
This dresser I got free curbside while driving the hood:
I have the second dresser almost done with painting. I decided to use spray paint and Im on my third can so I think for the first dresser I'll go with regular paint. I'll post afters tomorrow.
This set of three (2 mirrors and a picture) I got for about $6 total at the goodwill. They were the only project I have actually finished! LOL In the pic of the 2 small frames, the one on the left is after cleaning with mr clean! I almost could have left them white!
Heres the after, the color looks washed out but its a nice pastel yellow. I think it brings out the flowers in the photo better! The first dresser will be the same color as these, as I am hanging them over it. Do you think thats too matchy? Well I can always move them if so.

I do like blue but for some reason Im thinking a green or yellow. My daughter votes yellow too. But I think the green like an olive or minty aqua would be better. My windows are really high and not that big but i do get lots of light in there and I want to keep it bright. Speaking of light, I'm loving these mason jar lights that are real popular right now:

Im also really loving these old 70s plastic mirrors that I used to think were hideous. And my grandma had some I remember vividly and there were matching butterflies too. Maybe it was because they were brown. But now Im searching high and low for these! I picked up a set of three frames like these a week ago so I cant wait to transform them!
