    Ooh, I'll be back for that party, Julie! I have a paint color that I just love in my house.

    What a fun color you used is right! I love the piece, too; lots of storage which is always a plus.

    julie,
    this is so fun..it's perfect for a gameroom & really adds a pop of color against the walls. i love the vases filled with game pieces. i've used the scrabble and the dominoes but i love the legos! i will have to raid my son's (he's 21) stash that's packed away.

    Hi and wow, you are so much braver than I am! I like it but would have never ventured this far out on my own. I am a new follower, grabbed your button for the paint party, and even tho I am trying to "tone" down and be more neutral (so far it isn't working lol) I will be back for the party. Would love for you to stop by my place some time.

    I love the green, it's amazing how paint can transform and bring a piece of furniture back to life. I recently did a similar makeover in my basement. I love how mine turned out but I played it safe and painted it black. http://housetoyourhome.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/after-console.jpg

    Looks great! I admit that I've always been afraid to actually paint furniture and I've always just settled on staining it instead but very soon (hopefully) I'll be able to do some work on my own bedroom furniture and I'm loving the idea of a red dresser (little does hubby know ~ha!)

    I found this post when we were living abroad and decided that when I got home I was taking my mom's ugly old dresser (which she had previously offered me, but I declined) and transform it. I finally got started. I have a dresser and matching nightstands and I am painting them a grayish blue. I still need another coat on the drawers. Before I move on to glaze I wanted to find out if you used the exact recipe as the tutorial you linked to. Did you use the walnut stain mixed with the glaze? How much do you mix together for a piece this size? I'm a newbie but I really want my project to turn out right. Thanks for inspiring me.

    @Lindy
    Hi, Lindy! Yes, I did use the exact "recipe" & as I recall, this piece only took about 8 oz of glaze mixed with maybe a tablespoon of stain. It does depend on how heavy you want it glazed, but it's simple to mix more if needed. Feel free to email me if you have other questions. Good luck with your pieces!

    thanks for your help!
