I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
I wanted to share a project I snuck in before Christmas. Since this was for a friend, it was a little out of my usual realm of transformations.
My friend picked the paint color and graphics and I love them!
"Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual"
What a steal this was at the thrift store
Since this cabinet is for the bathroom right next to the commode, my friend picked a graphic for the side at just the right height lol!
I went over the graphics with the blender pen one to many times and the paint lifted on the top ship. It was Ok for this project, but I have made a mental note to not over do the transfer.
I have no idea where my friend found the graphics, so if you know, I will be happy to give credit
You can find the blender pen transfer method HERE at Graphics Fairy, along with other transfer methods.
After I painted and transfered the graphics I gave it a light sanding to distress it a little. Then gave it a coat of clear wax followed by a coat of Annie Sloan dark wax.
The perfect bathroom cabinet and it was only $15.00...My friend loved it!
I feel like I have been running a marathon....Anyone else feel like that? I think we all got caught off guard with the short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.
We have been so blessed here in Orlando with Perfect 75 degree sunny weather. I'm having a ball with my 17 and 21 year old nieces that are visiting from Minnesota.....They are loving this weather!
I have some big changes and happenings coming in the new year for The Polka Dot Closet....I can't talk about it quite yet, but I am so excited to take you all along as I embark on this new adventure !!
Have a Happy and safe New Year!
You have all enriched my life more than you will ever know!
