I kicked butt and took names yesterday!!

This dresser was really dark wood.

You remember the free one from this post.

I really like it and was so excited to finish it.

And I am so excited to use my new toys!

Yep that’s right I got new toys

A sander that I bought from Home Depot

P8050136 P8050137 P8050138 P8050139 P8050140 P8050142

I used it to sand down the dresser. And I love it! Oh my gosh why was I hand sanding?
Do you sand by hand? Stop! Go buy this, its like 30 bucks and you can use a coupon!

You will thank me!

And then Wagner sent me this beauty so I can review it.

P8050167 P8050168 P8050169 P8050170 P8050171 P8050173 P8050174 P8050176 P8050177 P8050178

I was more than excited to see it arrive and was jumping all over the place!
As my hubs unwrapped I took pictures!
The fun little tag is made of rubber! GENIOUS!

On the armoire here I spray painted the whole thing in Rustoleum’s Heirloom White which I love, but I wanted to use my power painter on the dresser, so I sprayed the heirloom white in large circle on a white piece of paper and took it to Home Depot to color match! And it came out perfect! So I got a big thing of it and could match the two pieces and use the power sprayer

Here are the numbas =)


I used Behr and it went on like butter!


Here she is all done. Painted with the power sprainter! {Spray painter in one you see that HAHA}

I left the original hardware on and sprainted {HAHA} it black!
They are cool and really pop!

I will do my review of the Wagner Power Painter in another post! But just to tell you one word on it. AMAZING!!!!!!!!

What's the pink thing on top you ask? Oh that's my jewelry holder you can see more of that here.
