My new favorite thing to do is to find furniture and accessories that need a make-over and give 'em one. Lets get something straight here though-I'm really not very good at it yet. If it wasn't for the makeover blogs I follow I would have never even thought about redoing some of the things I have.So don't expect to find any master pieces here just a few cute new additions to my home.
That being said here's my newest redo
I needed a new workbench for my studio and this table was just the size I was looking for. Loved that it had the rattan drawers. I got it at a yard sale for $5.00
Don't you love the my little pony drop cloth.
After 3 coats of black gloss spray paint it now looks like this
I had originally used a lacquer paint on it hoping would give it a slick shiny look.Big mistake. The wood sucked it up in certain places and left it dull while it left it super shiny in others. I was able to wipe alot of it off and start again with just a basic black.
I had some leftover aqua paint from another project and sprayed the drawers that color.
The top already had wormholes and dents which I just loved-adds character to an otherwise functional but bland table.
Total cost for project $11.00
