Inspired by one of my favourite blogs Better After, I wanted to try my hand at giving life back to an old piece of furniture. My husband found this little gem on the side of the road. He kindly asked the owner if it was ok to take and with their approval he brought it home for me.
It sat in our back room for many months until I finally bit the bullet and went to my local Bunnings Warehouse Store. I bought: 500ml Prep 4 in 1 British Paint for the undercoat, Dulux 1lt Super Enamel High Gloss paint for the top coat, a few little handles and some paint brushes. I already had a sander so that made things easier.
This was the perfect project for my first attempt. Not too big and not too expensive.
The process was quite easy. I sanded it back then gave it one coat of undercoat and three coats of Enamel.
Between each coat I gave it a light sand. After several days, this is the result.
I mod podge the inside of the drawers using craft glue and scrapbook paper.
Perfect for a little girls bedroom.
