Small Drawers, DIY Orange Ombre
I received this small chest of drawers as a gift. The front of each drawer had the same three decals on it: a crown, a meter stamp, and a saying right in the middle. The quote on the drawers went a little something like this, "If all of your actions are measured in gold, then this quote is way too long for anyone to remember."
I could have been okay with the meter stamp and maybe even the crown, but the quote had to go, especially since it was repeated on each drawer.
So I did a little ombre paint job that seriously took me about 30 minutes. I used white acrylic paint on the top drawer. The only orange paint I had was bright orange so I toned it down a bit by mixing in some white for the bottom drawer. I added a little more white paint to the orange/white paint mixture for the middle drawer. A couple of coats on each drawer with a clear coat of gloss and the project was finished.
