Storage Box Makeover (Part 2)
Nevertheless, I was determined to paint and post progress shots today.
So after carefully setting up everything in the back garden, I began by sanding the box and drawers using a fine grit sandpaper (P600).
After everything was sanded smooth, I wiped them over with a damp rag to remove any dust.
I wasn't overly pleased with the Dy-Mark paint (had never used this brand before) it felt a little grainy when it was touch dry. However, I did like the trigger design of the can, it felt good in my hand and made it much easier to use. Maybe when it's had a second coat it will look and feel better.
Should the weather be a as nice tomorrow, as it was first thing this morning, I will probably give it the second much needed coat.
Now I really need those brass card holders to hurry up and get here, so I can finish the draw fronts and begin using it for the purpose I have in mind (don't worry, you'll all find out soon enough).
Anyone else have any projects happening? They don't have to be dolly related . . . whether they are or not I'd love to see them if you do.
