Welcome Paint Lovers…
Today I’ve got the how-to on how I created the gingham from on my daughter’s dresser.
First you need to make your gingham device… for lack of a better word. You take a squeegee… like the kind you’d dry your car window or your shower doors… and a sharp scissors or knife. You need to decide the size of your checks. I think I did mine 3/4”. So every 3/4” you will cut out a section that is 3/4” wide. Does that make sense? So it’s going to look like a toothed squeegee. Do the whole squeegee from one side to the other.
I taped over the outer edges of the drawer and removed the knobs.
Then I mixed the paint with a glaze… about 2/3 paint, 1/3 glaze. The glaze will help the paint from setting and drying quickly.
Then I painted on the lavender paint and used the squeegee and wiped it one direction. Then wiped the paint off the squeegee. Then go back and go the other direction.
Such a fun addition. Her Pottery Barn Kid’s quilt has gingham in it… so it’s a cute tie-in.
