Want to know a fun and easy way to paint a dresser? It will brighten up the room and make others take notice! The best part is, it’s not a lot of work!
Step one: Try and get someone else to do it for you. This step takes finesse and sometimes broken promises. Make sure the promises, although tempting, are not so big they can’t be forgotten about within the week. If you choose to take this step, which everyone should, be prepared to for a high chance of disappointment.
If step one works, CONGRATULATIONS! You’re done! If not, move on to step two.
Step Two: Sorry you failed and are now at this step. Get better at sucking up. Some effort will now have to be put forth.
THE NON LAZY WAY:
Sand the paint off
Just paint. Take and brush and paint you find lying around the house. (You can go out and buy some new paint, but understand it makes the whole thing less lazy) Slap on a few coats.
Take a break, watch tv, grab a drink, eat.
Step 3: Spend five minutes touching up what you’ve already done.
Step 4: PHEW! So much work deserves a break. Take a few days off and finish later!
I can’t show you a picture of a finished dresser. It would be very un-lazy of me to have one done already.
If you follow these simple steps you will have a perfectly adequate dresser in a few short weeks! Friends and family will judge.
Sarah forgot to tell you about step 1.5. This step entails calling your best friend under the premise of “having breakfast together” and then tricking her into coming along to Lowe’s as “moral support.” What Sarah didn’t tell me about step 1.5 was that I’d be picking out paint color, choosing paint type, choosing paint brushes, and choosing new drawer knobs. And doing a painting test run on a drawer.
While the new dresser is sure to be awesome since nearly everything was helpfully selected by yours truly, it presented more decisions than I was prepared to make on a Saturday morning.
All I’m wondering now is how many weeks will pass before Sarah calls to “invite me over for dinner” while forgetting to tell me about the “finish the dresser” painting party she has planned instead.
