Welcome back! I had a super relaxing weekend with my family. I came back to Raleigh and had one of most productive days of my adult life. I knocked out TWO projects on Saturday (with the help of my husband).
I have been talking about finishing our entryway since June.
Five months later...
I am over do it yourselfing anything. Sand, prime, sand, prime...
I thought at this point in my life I would be able to pay someone. Not the case.
I was able to finish this piece in probably 4 hours. The priming, sanding, waiting, painting can take days. Honestly, I did not sand at all.
I have found that the Rustoleum Professional spray paint is by far the BEST! I feel like I have tried everything. Spray paint goes on smoother and it is less time consuming. The trick is you need to get the good stuff. This stuff is kind of pricey- around $6. It took about 2 cans of primer and 3 of the paint to cover the dresser. My other obsession is the Comfort Grip. All in all, if you are lazy this is the way to go. It is quick and looks decent.
**i do realize this looks like a product plug. no one pays me anything. i truly believe buying expensive rustoleum will save you lots of time. **
Also, I spruced up the blog. I added some new blogs to the blog roll and added a page for our home tour.
