This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie Paint Marker, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #SharpiePaintCreate https://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

I had this Ugly dresser…(the BEFORE before…) before dresser

Then it got painted white. And it stayed white for far too long. I knew I wanted to do something fun and unique but nothing quite fit.

With the adult coloring trend so popular, I thought it would be fun to doodle flowers all over it! My only problem was what to use! I needed something the would go on smooth on wood, water resistant and quick drying (so I didn’t smudge it as I doodled) Thank goodness I stumbled upon Sharpie oil-based paint markers found at Michael’s Store! They weren’t even expensive (plus I was armed with a Michael’s coupon so I got them for a great price!)  fun with sharpie paint pens

They were perfect! I bought a fine tip and a medium (and ended up using both sizes!) They went on so smooth and easy! Just make sure to follow the instructions on the back to get the ink to flow!  paint pen oil from sharpie

You can use on virtually any surface: metal, pottery, wood, rubber, glass, plastic, stone, and more! They are also AP Certified and Xylene free! l

Before I started, I actually practiced out some doodles. I didn’t know if I wanted all flowers or some doodles and some flowers. I wasn’t sure if I wanted really close together or white space in between (I opted for white space!) If you need help coming up with doodle patterns or ideas–google it! Lots of fun images to draw inspiration from!

Then it was time to start! It was super hard to take some action photos…

so I opted for a fun time-lapse video instead!

I quite love how it turned out!
