Allow me to introduce....


When Shirley and I first met she was a poor little dresser who had stickers and writing all over her. She was surrounded by other furniture people had dubbed ugly, broken, or unneeded at my local Goodwill. Surely Shirley deserved better than that!

"If only I had a place for her," I thought as I sadly left the thrift store without her. I went home that night and couldn't get her out of my head. I then came up with the idea to purchase and attempt my first flip and resell once I had given her some pizazz! I was unable to get to the store the next day, so I sent my parents on the mission. $25 later, she was mine!

I couldn't get over how much I loved the shape of the dresser and the handles, so I changed my mind and sought out a spot to keep Shirley in my home. I succeeded!!


I assume this is a remnant of the "artist" who previouly owned the dresser.

Now it was time to bring on the primer. One of the bloggers I follow recommends Zinsser primer especially on slick surfaces. I took her advice and I am pleased with the outcome!
