I've never painted a piece of furniture ......ever
My sojourn begins.....
The first project is my nightstand. See my daughter's lovely sharpie scrawl? It's been there for y e a r s
First, I took all the removable pieces off
The I started sanding with 100 grit sandpaper. Just a light sanding is all that is needed (or so the hubs told me) As I was sanding, I noticed a crack and some minor dents. The hubs said it gave it character but I decided I needed to learn to patch things
So I filled this crack and a few of the leg dings.
Tomorrow, I finish sanding and put on my first coat of......BURNT PEANUT RED.
I will miss having my nightstand for a few day. I guess a chair will have to do for another day or two.
My next projects for this room will be to pick a wall color and make a padded headboard with a removable slipcover. I saw one online somewhere (before pinterest) with buttons going down both sides but I can't find it again....drat! I'm thinking toile like the foot stool???
Have any of you got any diy tips????
