Before: My Dad's old chest that was sitting unused in our basement.
Process: I got started by sanding down the wood, and then wiping it clean with a wet cloth. I added four coats of Behr Premium Plus Paint & Primer in one, and then spray painted the drawer pulls black.
After: The result of my very first DIY project! I put together a little vignette for the photograph, but I think I'll end up using it as a vanity table once I move into my new room.
I love how you can really see the ornate carving details in the lighter colour.
I am so happy with the results, and can't wait to do more!
