I started by lightly sanding the surface and distressing(with a hammer, woohoo!) by hand. I primed it, painted 2 coats of pink paint, then distressed with again with sanding paper. I used brown glaze to add some character and more of a distress look again. (Note to self: do not leave glaze on too long) This was my first glazing experience. To finish it off, I used 2 coats of polyurethane. It turned out beautiful, I was so proud of my first furniture project!
I found the idea on Pinterest to use ribbon as drawer handles.
Her room is brown and pink. We have yet to find carpet, but hopefully that will be soon! I will keep you updated on the progress.
