After waiting for inspiration to strike, Karen got to work scraping and stripping and sanding to remove the layers of peeling paint. She then painted the dresser in a slate grey and created a pattern to help celebrate her 19th wedding anniversary. Karen used chalk to sketch two lilies (her wedding flower), then used a permanent paint pen to draw the final outline. Rather than fill in the outline with paint, she chose instead to sand inside, allowing the natural wood tones to shine through as the body of the flower. The end result is a far cry from the dumpster find!
