I am so excited to finally have completed this makeover on my bedside table!
This piece of furniture used to be my mom’s, and it has sat beside our bed in our master bedroom for over a year now.
However, I have never liked this piece of furniture because it just really isn’t my style. I’m not a “cherry furniture” kind of gal.
Now, I know that some of you are, and a lot of you are going to think I am cray-cray for painting it. But I know if my mom was still living, she would say, “Honey, if you would like it better painted, then paint it!!”
So I did!
Mainly because of this inspiration picture from Pinterest…
This picture makes my heart skip a beat every time I see it!
Here is what the piece of furniture looked like before I started painting…
First, I removed all of the hardware with a screwdriver.
Then I applied a layer of KILZ primer with a sponge roller.
After the primer dried, I applied a coat of my favorite white paint at Lowe’s. It is the same paint that I used on my kitchen cabinets.
It’s extremely durable and dries to a hard finish. I used a paint brush for the curvy parts of the furniture and a sponge roller for the smooth parts.
I applied two coats of paint on top of the primer, then I let it dry really good.
The furniture was really finished at this point, but I wanted the table to have a little bit of a shine to it, so I added some wipe-on poly.
Then when it was dry, I added some hardware from Hobby Lobby to the drawers.
The hardware only called for one hole in the middle, so I drilled new holes with my drill and then attached the hardware.
I already love this piece of furniture so much more!
And truthfully, I know that my mom would too! She would be so happy to know that I am loving and enjoying her piece of furniture.
This corner of our room used to look dark and dingy. Now it looks like and airy! Yay!
