From Drab to Fab!

Drab to Fab!

Every makeup obsessed lady needs somewhere fabulous to keep all that pretty makeup and the perfect place to make yourself gorgeous. So i decided to get all crafty .......

I got the dressing table on Ebay here is the original picture on the listing ( I forgot to do a before pic) 

I got this bad boy for £42 and went to pick it up form Barnsley.

Having got some inspiration from pinterest and read up on the best way to paint furniture. I took a trip to B&Q and got this collection. 

The primer i found in Aldi for a fiver (bargain).

How i did it:

  • Removed all the handles
  • Sanded whole thing with fine sandpaper to remove shine

  • Primer
  • Colour paint
  • Sand again
  • 2 more thin coats of colour
  • Buff in finishing wax

I'm very impatient so luckily the paint dried fast. I have to say i am very proud of myself as I have never attempted anything like it, so here is my finished Dressing table ...

I have absolutely loads of paint left so might start on the rest of the furniture.

What do you think? Would you try it?

Would you have done it differently?
