So this past week I discovered painting furniture.
I thought I would experiment with M's old bedside table. It's a little Walmart special from his days as a child and it served as the perfect subject for my experiment.
So down to the basement it came and after picking my my new orbital sander and some supplies I got to work.
But, I decided that it was better to work amidst the snow in the driveway instead of the basement. So I dragged it outdoors and sanded her down.
And then I primed it with a primer spray paint. Next time I'll use paint can primer I think. There were a number of drips with the spray paint and I had to work to sand those out once that coat dried.
Two coats of 'cloud white' paint and a new piece of hardware and we have this.
A before and after: check that business out!
Stay tuned because this isn't the last furniture re-do for me. In fact this is my next piece.
I'll be back with more!
