This is what my nightstand originally looked like...
It's an antique ;)
First off, we had to sand the surface to get a smooth top by using just a sanding bar thing. And this is what it looks like after all the sanding. We used a damp cloth to wipe off all the dust and debris.
Let it dry and use a primer before painting. It's just like applying makeup, you have to start with a clean face and a primer before you can apply your foundation to have a smooth and flawless look. You girls understand =)
So we thought it was a good idea to do all of this inside my room...until we got high. haha not really, but seriously though, DON'T do this inside your house! Especially since we used a spray primer and the fumes really got to us.
We applied a couple of thin layers of primer on and this is after primer...I've read that you should use a gray color primer if you have darker wood and white primer for lighter color wood like mine.
Our spray primer(Zinsser Bulls Eye 1.2.3)and white paint (Valspar satin white)
And FINALLY, our finished product!!! After 2 coats of white paint and some touch ups and Nhu's awesome artistic skills! We have a beautiful dandelion themed nightstand! We're not professional painters or anything but I think it was a decent job. As always, we had a lot of fun doing this together! Thanks Nhu =) you're the besttttest ;)
