How is everyone doing?

We’ve been busy and HOT around here.

This heat is going to kill us!

 

Do you remember the little table that I showed you last week on my Facebook Page?

The one that I paid $4 for?

Well it got a little makeover!

Let me show you…

 

Crazy… but wait you have to see the inside.

 

 

Crazy fun I say!

This post is to show you that you should never underestimate the treasures hidden in a Thrift Store.

$4? We are taking about FOUR DOLLARS?

How cool is that? I should give myself a sticker!

 

TUTORIAL

This nightstand was made with the laminated plywood that the 70’s found so attractive.

A few weeks ago I did a tutorial of how to paint laminated plywood furniture,

well today I am touching the basics again.

 

1

The first thing you need to do is to remove the hardware from the furniture.

This night stand had as a handle a piece of something and the bottom drawer was missing it,

so it has to go. Please forgive my tools…

Yes that was a knife and a meat tenderizer hammer.

After the removal it was time to thoroughly clean the nightstand.

I used soap and hot water to remove any oil and dust from the nightstand.

After the nightstand was clean and dry I used some wood putty to fill the holes and scratches.

Let the putty dry and after sand it softly.

Remove all of the dust from the sanding and all you have left is to paint.

I purchased some wood knobs and painted them yellow…

As simple as that!

 

 

My girls loved the inside… Isn’t it so fun?

 

Just in case you are wondering I want to share the paint colors with you

The yellow is 310B-5 Spiced Butternut by BEHR. 

 

 

The gray is my very favorite gray.

The name of the paint is Quilt { D16-2 } by Olympic ONE.

 

I hope this post and makeover inspires you to look around for pieces of furniture with great potential.

Now I better go and keep painting, another piece of furniture needs some love.

I will be posting about it soon.
