Why I Shouldn't Be Allowed To Use Spray Paint

THIS is why:

Believe it or not, it actually looked worse once I tried to clean up.  I had silver spray paint under my fingernails, and it looked like dirt! 

As I am not a crafty girl, I don't usually use spray paint, so you may be wondering why in the world I would have silver spray paint all over my hand. 

I found a free dresser on Freecycle and picked it up.  Here are some before pics and pictures of me cleaning it up:

My friend, Brooke, once told me that silver spray paint can make anything look great, so I decided to paint this dresser silver.  (Also, if I paint it silver, it's less likely one of my children will want to take it with them when they move out.)  Here are pics of each step.

Not perfect, but it's a HUGE improvement!
