Of course, I didn't even notice this missing chunk until I was home~
I thought I could just pry off the rest of the veneer, but no such luck! After googling "How to get off peeling veneer" I learned that this does the trick pretty well!
I just layed a cloth down first and ironed over the top in little sections. That heated up the glue under the veneer and allowed me to chip and pull the rest off. Still, a big pain, though! Ugh!
BTW, it might be a good idea to NOT use the good iron
like I did. That first shirt that gets ironed afterwards just might have an interesting scent! Oops! :)
After sanding, I primed it with this wonderfulness~
I love this stuff, especially in the cold wintertime when I would much rather paint inside where it's nice and warm!
On a recent trip to Lowe's I also found this adorable pink paint in the Oops section. I already have a couple cans of pink paint, but how can a girl pass up a deal like this?
This paint is from their Olympic line that is also low odor and 0 VOC~ yea!
After a couple coats of pink paint, it was glazing time!
Sharon, over at Elizabeth and Co. is one of my favorites. She does a lovely job transforming furniture pieces (and she herself is a sweetie pie)! On several of her pieces she has used white glaze, and it always looks so dreamy! I thought I'd give it a try. Sharon shares her tips on how to apply glaze here.
I was out of white paint, so I just grabbed a little sampler of Ultra White at Lowes to mix into the glaze.
These pulls came from Hobby Lobby. I had to buy them when they were half price because they are spendy little suckers, but so danged cute!
I was going to use and then feature this little tool my husband uses to clip the backs of pulls for me so they don't stick out too far inside the drawer.
He wasn't home when I had the urge to test it out, so I tried it myself and ended up doing this~
I basically knawed off the end and then snapped the top part off. So...ya...I'm going to go ahead and wait until my husband gets home to do the rest, I think. :)
I finished off the vanity with a coat of this~
The drawers were lined and mod podged with this pretty paper from Michael's~
I hope this ends up in some sweet little girl's room!
*Update~ It did! :)
