This is another project I did for my dining room re-do. And I’m so excited about it!! It no longer feels like something I bought at a garage sale for super cheap and have had since college (which it is). ;)
To make it easy on myself, I did not want to fill in holes/smooth out scrapes etc… so I went with that ‘distressed’ look! So it just added character when I banged it into the door bringing back into the house, right? Plus it’s just all around fun to go nuts with sandpaper! ;)
I did do a couple of coats of grey primer before the black so that when I sanded and distressed the previous colors wouldn’t show through!
Some new silver brushed knobs and it looks like a whole new piece of furniture!
I’d totally buy it! Except I don’t have to, because all it cost was a couple little things of paint and some sandpaper I already had! Sold! ;)
BTW, this is what it actually looks like in my home, in use. It’s a little bit of a landing space as we walk in from the garage, and we can use it to hold additional food when we are hosting a big meal (I did mention it is in the dining room, right?)
Feels SO good to have this project done… it’s one that has been on my list for a long time!
