As a Lowe’s Creative Ideas Network member I am presented with a monthly Mission Possible. October’s mission, which I chose to accept reads:
Let your imagination run wild this month and use your Lowe’s gift card do whatever project you like this month.
So I considered my options. I let my imagination run a few laps and what I really want to do is refinish a dresser that I love, but has been buried in my back storage area for some time now. What I really don’t want to do is sand the dresser before I paint it, so I’m going to try using Zinsser Bulls Eye Water-Base Primer & Sealer. It claims to stick to all surfaces without sanding and works with all topcoats. I also got a can of Valspar ULTRA Paint + Primer tinted to Cracked Pepper in satin finish. I realize I don’t need the paint to also be a primer since I’m already using a primer, but I got this one because it is low odor and zero VOC.
Here are some shots of the dresser that stands to benefit from my efforts. I love it for a variety of reason, especially it’s provenance. I bought it from a friend who has moved far away, the dresser reminds me of her. However, I do not love the finish on it.
It’s difficult to get a shot of the full dresser because my backroom is so small. I took one more before picture of it with my cellphone so you could see most of it. I told you it was buried.
I’m really hoping I can give it a facelift that will make me want to pull it out of the backroom and into the bedroom. I’ll be sure to show you the results when I’m done.
