First Time Blogger!

I am new to the blog world. So at first it will be mostly posts of random projects I am working on.
I am a graphic designer living in Philadelphia trying to find my niche in the art world. :)
DIY - Furniture Refurbishing - Pictures of the process

Using a power sander and sanding blocks we took the glossy finish off leaving it still smooth but dull enough for the primer. 

Tools used :
Power Sander
Sanding Blocks 180 & 220 Grit
Valspar Latex Primer
Elmer's Wood Filler Putty

Finished pictures to come next week! :)
DIY - Furniture Refurbishing

I started a weekend project of refurbishing an old dresser. This was also my mom's dresser from when she was child and it has been passed onto me. I wanted to update the look of it and give it a vintage feeling at the same time. With the help of my boyfriend this has been a fun project and I am now contemplating on making this a side job!
