Teen Room Redo Part 5: Painting Furniture

Ain't she a BEAUT?!

This is what my daughters vanity started out as! I found this in a thrift store for $20! A little steep possibly, but she had "good bones" and was EXACTLY what I was looking for when I dreamed up this little project MONTHS before. But of course, it needed a little face lift.

We started by sanding her down and removing all of the hardware.

About the same time, I decided that she needed bedside tables and had two in the house that weren't being used. All they needed was a little paint and they would fit right in :) So again, we sanded and removed the hardware.

Then the hubs spray painted. And painted. And painted some more.

And then some more because it started cracking :-/ He decided the paint he was using was subpar and went and got some Krylon Fusion.

And all was right with the world.

Not bad for an old side table huh? Even particle board can be painted! After looking at it next to the vanity, we decided that it needed something ...

And painted the top black. Pretty sweet huh?!

We did the same thing to the vanity and added some new silver hardware that we had on hand. It went a lot better with it's new chic look ;)

I absolutely ADORE the way it came out! It took a little bit of elbow grease and a LOT of spray paint, but I sure do love it :)

OK! So that's just about it as far as the projects for the Teen Room Redo go! Up NEXT ... ... THE BIG REVEAL :D aka MORE PICS AND STORIES THAN YOU CAN SHAKE A STICK AT. It's all very exciting, I know ;)

Linking up to these AWESOME parties!!
