It has been done for a while, but I have had a pretty crazy couple of weeks, so I am just now getting around to posting photos. I finally completed my goal of repainting my sewing cabinet that my mom handed down to me. You can follow the saga of this project here.
The spray paint technique did not work out for me.
And so I stripped it with real paint stripper and not just the liquid sandpaper I used the first time. I sanded too. Much better! Then I primed and painted with a brush. One coat of Kilz. Two coats of antique white. Brush painting has its drawbacks. You can see brushstrokes and some drips go undetected until it is too late. But that is where I learned you can sand between coats.
And while it's not perfect. I'm happy!
Matches much nicer with my wall organizer and my neat Ikea chair! Looks great from a distance too.
