- Pick up the plywood and processed it into drawer stock, ready to be cut to length for box construction.
- Build out the inside dresser to be ready to install the full extension drawer guides
- Cut replacement “dust frames”
- Completely scuff sand the dresser case
- Breaking out my HF HVLP Spray Gun kit Spray Zinsser BIN primer on the dresser case and drawer fronts
After letting the primer dry, I did a quick knockdown of the primer with 320grit and am extremely pleased with the results. The surface is smooth, and better than any brush job I could have hoped to accomplish. Very smooth finish and no runs on the vertical sides.
I’m very glad that the wifey strongly recommended I get a tool to spray the primer and paint for this project (not that I needed much convincing). While the HF HVLP won’t win any awards with me (as it bleeds rather profusely), I think it does the job as a starter tool and was very easy to learn, use, and get good results with. For my current usage, it does the job at a good price point. I’ll probably look to upgrade when the unit dies.
Next up, install the drawer glides and install the drawer boxes. Now if I can just get the wifey to settle on a paint color scheme…
