With only 5 more weeks to go before baby Nguyen is here, it is crunch time!
I have been working on the finishing details for the baby's nursery. If you recall I did a post a couple months back where I was trying to decide between three different design themes. Well, I decided to go with a variation of the Geometric Palm Springs theme.
This campaign dresser I scored at a local flea market. Please excuse my mess.
The hardware on it was pretty grimy and pitted. Since Brasso did not clean them up like I had hoped, I gave spray painting a try.
After reading some reviews, I purchased Krylon's metallic spray paint in Gold Leaf. The hardware on the corners of the dresser are attached with little pins. I was afraid if I took them off they would get damaged. So, I decided it would be best to hand paint them. Martha Stewart's Brass Liquid Gilding appeared to be a good color match to the spray paint.
After painting all the hardware, the corners were a bit darker. I then took an empty glass and sprayed the spray paint in to it. I mixed it real well and then applied the spray paint with a brush on to the corner hardware. Surprisingly, it worked.
I am pretty pleased with how the hardware turned out. Stay tuned to for the final nursery reveal.
