More Crafting!!

Zack picked up a dresser from my sister yesterday that we were supposed to give to my mother-in-law. Well, when I saw it, I knew I couldn't pass it by. It was already painted the perfect color of green that matches Zayde's nursery! So, I selfishly decided to keep it for myself and jazz it up. (Don't worry, I'm going to give my mother-in-law a different dresser.) Here are some pictures of my fun project...

Before...



...hard at work



measuring out lines...



Ta-da!! The finished project...

I am so pleased with the way it turned out. I just love it!

For Zayde's name, I printed off the letters from the computer, cut them out, taped them on the dresser, traced them with a pencil, and then hand painted them in.


For the polka-dot circles, I traced different sizes of circles using stencils, and then painted them in. For the stripes, I measured out the lines with a ruler, and then painted them.


For these circles, I dipped the rim of a cup in my paint, and then pressed the cup directly onto the dresser.

Oh wow...This is so cute. And will go great in Zayde's room. Wasn't that fun? Doing craft projects like this will make you look around your house & see what else you can paint on, I know because I've done it, Ha!!!!
