I have acquired a new love! A roadside cast-off that a friend was thoughtful enough to give to me. It turns out that this lovely piece of furniture is an actual utility wardrobe from WWII. These wardrobes were made for young couples just married during the war. They were made with less expensive wood and supplies as wood was scarce. All utility furniture was bought with ration coupons. I can’t believe anyone would put this out with the trash! But none-the-less their loss my gain.
The only problem I’m having is painting it. I’ve never really figured out the right formula for repainting and I’m a bit impatient and have been known to skip steps. Yes I know hard to believe!! So the things I’ve repainted thus far have been small enough for me to be able to spraypaint. Well this piece of furniture is too big to spray. I wiped it down with Liquid Sandpaper and got my paint from Home Depot – muslin white. I started to paint with a foam brush and it’s not really working!!
Any tips from seasoned pro’s? I’m thinking I’ll go back at it tomorrow with a proper painting brush after I give it a little sanding.
