way back in August, I started to re-do the green campaign dresser that yall love (see post here: oooooooops)
a. I had to decorate the top so it wasn't blahh,
b. I had to vacuum,
c. I had to take pictures with a legitimate camera and that meant finding the charger.... which.. I found back in August.
So really the main roadblock here was my sheer ability to be unbelievably lazy.
Well here we are in February, and I'll give you a little history. The green campaign dressers were inspired by Vanessa De Vargas. She's a friggin genius. I loved that project, and version II is in the works right now.
I needed a lower dresser for the bedroom. Mainly because I have too many clothes, but also because my brain puts rooms together like puzzles that I can't explain in words, but the fact that the dresser I had was high and shouldn't have been high was making me wonk-eyed every time I walked in the bedroom. Not the most zen experience.

I started with this hot mess:
cut out my template:
(hand-drawn... don't ask how. I will mail you a copy if you want)
measure, tape, measure, tape
trace trace trace
tape tape tape
I actually have a tip I can give you: makeup brushes from CVS are the SH*TS meow for painting small areas like this. And they're cheaper than the ones from Benjamin Moore.
done! So impatient I popped the hardware back on while it was still wet.
mission complete baby
