Wardrobe Painting

Introduction: Wardrobe Painting

About: Hey! My name is Roey Leon, from Tel Aviv, Israel. On my free time, as a hobby of mine, I love building stuff from scratch. It always starts with a crazy idea, and then I realize that it`s too Dangerous / Una...

Hey ALL!

I finished another project ! , in which i earned two things , first my room got whole lot bigger ! and i got my self

a " new" Wardrobe !

It`s color was brown , and to buy a new one will cost at least 1500$ for a huge closet like this.

So, the best was to paint it !

You need the next in order to complete it successfully :

10m of Sanding paper grit 150

10m of sanding paper grit 250 - for smoothing the surface

Primer color for the paint to bond to the wood.

2 Brushes

1 Roller

Lots of time ,coffee and a smile

After it dried , paint a two more layers !

    You did a great job on this RoeyLeon. It's inspiring what some clever & patient elbow grease can do. I'm filling holes & sanding back some walls that had 30 yrs old dreary wallpaper on them. Your work gives me encouragement .... can't wait for the uplifting white paint to go on !!!
