If you’ve been following along on my friend’s dining room makeover, you probably already know that I’ve missed a couple of projects. Because I’m a slacker. I know, I know, but they’re still coming, pinky promise. And today’s post furniture makeover post is one of them. We recycled as much of her furniture as we could, but everything we did reuse needed a fresh revamp. So I decided to give this 90’s country style console a facelift – and here’s how I did it…
First I used liquid deglosser (aka liquid sandpaper) just like I do on all furniture painting jobs. I used fine grit sand paper to sand off the top really well, then moved on to the drawers.
Next I used wood filler to fill in the holes…
then smeared it around really well with my finger to make sure the hole was filled.
Then I kinda smoothed it out with my finger. After that I sanded it all smooth. (But if yours still has tiny indentions, refill, let dry and resand.)
Once that was done I painted it the same way I paint all furniture. Then I found the center of the drawer and drilled holes for the new knobs from Lowe’s*, installed those and I was done!.
The whole shebang took one afternoon, and it totally transformed the piece from meh to chic by using gloss paint.
