#makeovermonday / in progress – painting Glennie the Great’s bedroom vanity from the 50s

the daily Starr makeover monday blog

One thing I’ve been able to figure out about my life: painting is therapy.

Especially painting furniture.

And with a day like today, I needed some therapy. Anybody relate??

Too many times I put off projects that are going to take too long because I won’t have enough time to finish them – especially when I’m working on something that I’m using for the blog and a #makeovermonday post.

I’ve put off this bedroom vanity that belonged to Glennie the Great for so long – for that very reason.

Today – I seriously needed to paint because my mind needed time to decompress. Even though I got home after 5pm, it was time for this project to begin.

Brian took the kiddos to the park while I put dinner in the oven and headed upstairs to get started.

I used my trusty Valspar Latex Exterior Primer – straight off the shelf at Lowe’s in white.

The first coat went straight on in about 45 minutes.

Note: I don’t sand. I don’t even clean and wipe off dust (shhhhh, don’t judge).

I just grab my paint and my brush and my old blue beach towel and paint.

That coat dried while we ate dinner and then I came back to work while the kiddos got baths.

This project isn’t finished, but that’s the beauty of real life.

The side panels and inside panels all still have 1 coat and that is OK. I refuse to stress tonight about sending you something in progress.

Just think, I’m so close to having a finished product and that makes me happy.

Stay tuned! This project to be continued.

Have a project you’ve been putting off because it seems like too much?

Start small. Start now.

You’ll be that much closer to finishing and perfection is seriously overrated πŸ™‚
