Entertainment Center Makeover

post1A

The previous owners of our home left a few items behind, and the best was this large dresser. I knew the moment I saw this dresser that it would be the subject of my first furniture makeover. It is a quality, solid wood, piece that I knew would make a perfect entertainment center. Here is what I used to create my masterpiece:

Microfiber Towel
Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint
Deco Art Americana Decor Creme Wax
Wooster Paintbrush, 2-Inch
Crystal Glass Cabinet Knobs Drawer Pulls

This project, unlike many I choose to undertake, turned out to be much easier than I thought. The process was extremely quick and easy largely thanks to the type of paint used. The reason I chose to use chalk paint is that YOU DONT HAVE TO SAND! This was my first time using this type of paint, so I was a bit skeptical. This paint, however, completely lives up to the hype. I used a more economical brand, and it was still amazing. Here is a “during shot” for your viewing pleasure. I wasn’t really careful about protecting the floor which of course led to a mess, but it wasn’t difficult to clean. Just do it fast! I didn’t need to worry about moving the piece outside because this paint doesn’t give off any fumes!

This whole process literally only took a couple of hours. After removing and discarding the drawers, I simply applied one coat with the short handled brush (this brush enabled maximum control). By the time I had finished the first coat, it had already started to dry. I was able to move immediately to the second and final coat. I was much more careful and neat with the second coat. After I had completed painting, I applied a layer of the wax with a dry microfiber cloth. I then drilled holes into the back panel for cords. After this all that was left was to change the door pulls.post1B

I did later decide to paint the spaces inside the drawers white as well. This has to have been my most successful DIY to date! It encourages me to create hundreds more. Stay tuned for more projects! 🙂

  1. 脱毛サロンなんて数回通ったらOKよなどと思っている方は特に、 どんなにスムーズに施術が進んだとしても通うことを覚悟しなければなりません 。 そのような背景もありますの で、通いやすいという側面 は、
    これから通おうと思っているお店を 決める時に至って大切なことなのです 。特に 是非全身脱毛にトライしてもようと思っている方
    は、 最短でも 、 約12か月ほどは 全身脱毛の処理に時間をかけること を 頭の中に入れておく必要があります 。 脱毛周期と部位の広さから最低でも6回は通って頂く必要がありますなどと、 全身脱毛の場合は2か月の1クルーが最低でも6回は必要ということが設定されていることも少なくありません。脱毛サロンでも施術を後で後悔しないため にも、スタート地点のワキ脱毛 でサロンのシステムや雰囲気、スタッフの接客対応 をチェック して、 スタッフの方との会話をこなしながら、 この脱毛サロンだったら大丈夫だと思えるようなら 他の 部位 もやってもらうのが、失敗が少なくて済むやり方 のように思います。 複数部位の脱毛をお願いするとなると、 特定部位の脱毛 とは異なり料金が高くなります し、脱毛が完全に終わるまでの期間 が
    毛の濃さやムダ毛の箇所・分量によって終了までの期間が多きく違ってくる場合も結構あります 。そうなるとやはり、悪徳な業者に引っ掛からないよう サロン選びはじっくり考えましょう。
