I decided to use that tall drawer unit, rather than give it to Goodwill. It was pretty cool when my mom bought it, but has since lost it's appeal. Don't be offended, mom....it just can't stay looking like that! It needed a heavy dose of spray paint. So I took it down to the dungeon.
I pulled a 'Boozie Susie' and made a very sad attempt at wiping everything down, I just didn't feel like it. There are some painted dust bunnies inside the drawers, but if anyone is offended, I will just ask them to please stop snooping in my drawers.
One coat of Cover Stain primer later, and it was looking pretty good! Cover Stain is a great spray for wicker, it really clings to slick and shiny surfaces.
I used Rustoleum Universal spray in White Gloss for a finish coat. Love that stuff!
The frame was just about the most annoying thing to paint, ever. Our entire basement now has a fine mist of white thanks to this thing and the crazy angles I had to spray in.
I cut a few more corners because this spray paint costs one million dollars and no one needs to see the back or bottom of my storage unit. Got it, snoopers?!
So basically, the fronts look really nice.
And here she is looking cute in my closet! Does it sort of echo the white wicker furniture that some of us girls (or our friends) had in our bedrooms as kids? Yep. But that is ok with me. It's way better than the before!
Now I have somewhere to store my extra toiletries, sewing supplies (using 'sewing' very loosely) and other things I don't want to clutter up the linen closet. Best thing is the whole makeover cost about $10 in spray paint. Thanks, mom!
