As part of my boys room makeover, I hand painted an unfinished wood dresser as my son's favorite Star Wars character the BB8 Droid.
As you can see from the before pic, it had no finish of any kind, and a good helping of stickers and markers decorating it instead.
I removed all the stickers and scrubbed as much marker off as I could.
For the areas it didn't come all the way off I gave it a coat of clear polycrylic to seal it.
Then using chalk paint, covered the entire dresser with a coat of white.
Next, using my Artograph projector, I traced the droid image onto the dresser, and from there, simply painted it in.
The results are great, and the kids love it!
