So TA DA...here's the finished project and it's a beauty!
Since I normally spray in the garage, this made me nervous and I covered the car with a tarp, even though it was a safe distance away. Also, it was very humid so I wonder if that had anything to do with the heaviness and drifting of the spray?
After waiting 24 hours, I lightly sanded the edges of the drawers and chest and replaced the hardware.
The entire project took 4 cans of spray paint - at about $4 each. I used one sheet of 220 grit sandpaper for the original light sanding and to sand the edges afterward. The remainder of the cost for the project incurred about 3 total hours of labor - and since I did it myself, usually while "in the middle" of other stuff, that was pretty much FREE. So...about $18 total for this:
I am still working on other projects, or prototypes for other projects, and will be getting those posted in the next few weeks. I have also found a job (insert HUGE smile here) and will be spending a lot of time in the next few months training for my new position as a Home Care Nurse. I haven't felt so excited about a new project in a long time...well since July anyway, when I started this blog!
Have a great weekend and if you see Joe Siehl today, wish him a Happy 15th Birthday!
