Progress on the Girlie Dresser

Why I call it the Girlie Dresser?  Probably because of the pink color that somebody sloppily gooped tried to paint on it and the spindles on the sides. 
I have stripped off all of the paint.  At first it peeled right off but the drawers and spindles were more of a nightmare so I invested in a little more paint stripper.

That stuff is toxic! a secret weapon!  It works like a charm! 
Sanding was much easier. 
It’s still a work in progress but I will give you a sneak peek on the direction it’s going.
(notice I ditched the spindles, I am now having nightmares about them laughing at me as I try to tame them!)
Still needs some in-between sanding and coats of paint but so far I like the direction it is going. 
Now I am taking a painting break for two days and am going to spend the last moments of summer indulging in some busy kiddo activities with my precious lovelies! 
I will try to finish up the Girlie Dresser this weekend  🙂
Happy Treasure Hunting!

    Wow, that's a really bad before! But oh my, I can tell the after is going to be fabulous! I LOVE stained tops on painted furniture pieces. I think they are so much more durable. Looking good!
