For the swap I had to make 25 dressers with mirror.
This pic shows after I had completed some steps.
It shows all the pieces except the drawer fronts.
Trimmed wood feathers with scissors.
Glue legs to sides using a jig.
Glue wood trim to the mirror back. (upper left corner in the pic above)
Paint sides with black. I used a black paint pen. And oh my gosh, I couldn't believe how well that paint pen worked. Now it was only the black that worked and not the white pen I had.
Then I painted the other pieces - top (middle top) and chest front (lower right) white, then added black squares around the edge. Had to use a tiny paint brush for the black.
The mirror back was painted white around the edges and on the trim. Then repeated the black square process around the edges. In the above pic, I had already started adding the flowers to the mirror trim.
After painting the white one coat, I sanded and did another coat and sanded again. This gave a nice smooth painted finish.
Back to the polka dots on the sides. To do that I used a metal tip dipped in a white paint puddle and then touch the tip. If I messed some of them up, I painted over with the black paint pen and did the white dots over.
The chest assembly needed to dry so I would paint the dots in between.
This pic shows having added the top to the chest and started painting the flowers.
Mirror paper glued in place. I glued the paper on and then after it dried I would trim to the edge with scissors.
Then I added pink dots. Then green leaves, then yellow dots on the pink. When the yellow dots were wet, I added the no-hole beads in the paint and used the paint as glue.
