I bought these old off white bedside tables from Trade Me (New Zealand's equivalent to Craigslist) for $38 about 6 months ago now. Great bargain. So I have finally got around to getting them sanded back and repainted a semi-gloss white to make them look new again.
With all hardware removed I sanded back well using orbital and palm sander and washed down with warm soapy water with a little vinegar to remove dust and grease. Using a small roller I applied two coats of undercoat/primer, before doing several top coats to give a good finish.
The handles were gold and white, so I spray painted a satin silver over top to add a bit of glamour. They still needed something else so I painted on some chalk paint into the grooves and did a few coats and rubbed off any excess. Now I have achieved the right look I was after.
I have not done any redecorating in our bedroom yet. Still to strip the wallpaper, re-plaster and paint, also needs new carpet. All I have done is put up new blinds and curtains. will update this blog when we get it all finished.
