Today I thought I would share another DIY with you, as my sister had a bedside table lying around that was just waiting to be spruced up and do you know what the best part is? This DIY cost under £10. The table itself was only £5 from a charity shop – life just doesn’t get better!
For this DIY you will need:
- A bedside table
- Paint Brush
- Chalkboard Paint
The first thing I did was abrase the surface of where I wanted to paint using fine sandpaper.
Next I unscrewed the handle using my screwdriver and got to work painting the first coat. I think I did really well considering all I had to do this with was a foam brush!
I left the first coat to dry for about an hour then came back and added another coat.
And another after that.
Whilst the last coat was drying I painted the handle and the edges of the door; again both of these required several coats because the paint was water based and very translucent. Once everything had dried I primed the paint by rubbing chalk all over it and then wiping it off with a damp cloth.
Next came the fun part… drawing on it!
Oh and I nearly forgot to screw the handle back on! I really liked how this turned out and hopefully my sister will too.
