This makeover is so simple and can be done on pretty much any furniture, it obviously has to be real timber and not laminated.
I decided I wanted a new ‘everyday’ kitchen table, something smaller then our original one which seats 10! – there was enough room for it to be in the space but I just found it to ‘ modern’ for the kitchen/ family room area.
So the hunt started – when I start looking for something I want I search between @gumtreeau and @ebayau for the best deal! I found this table on @gumtreeau and it was part of a set, 1 rule ‘it doesn’t hurt to ask’. The set was $400 so I messaged the person and offered $150 for the table, she said no but wanted more money, I said no back! A week later she messaged me offering me the table at $150 🙌👌 – I always wait till it’s right for me, I didn’t need it straight away so I waited till the price was right!
STEP 1 – Sand back the top!
This make over is very straight forward just sand, sand and sand some more till you get the look you want! Sand paper is from Bunnings!
STEP 2:- Paint the legs!
Use the 123 primer paint – 2 coats and finish with your choice of colour!
The 123 primer paint seams the the timber/stain so you can paint straight over! It’s cheaper the chalk paint and gives a smooth finish.
I still need to put the light grey on my legs so I will update this blog once it is done.
Total cost $160
