This project has been years in the making and in recent past, months in the making. I’ve always wanted a space that it easy to use and maintain where everything has a place. Not much to ask, right? Well, my dad is awesome and it’s done!
I first painted it with wall paint, then I thought that’s probably not going to last very well, so then I put a couple of extra coats of Porch and Deck paint on it. Then I learned that you can’t use polyurethane on white paint. Or on latex paint. It was yellow and made the paint bubble in places. Very disappointing. I was hoping for something with a harder finish, because paint gets scuffed so easily. I never did find a great solution, so I painted over the topcoat I used and I’m left with a scuffed desk. Oh well.
Then I spray painted my dresser for this room blue. Valspar has some awesome colors, thought I wasn’t entirely impressed with the quality of the paint/sprayer. It’s finished nonetheless, and I LOVE the color. I’ll post some tips for painting this dresser next time! Tape and trash bags is a good hint of what I’ll have to share.
Then my mom came over and helped me get my house back in order. We got the room all clean and beautiful. I am donating a bunch of stuff and I threw away so much stuff.
