Here is the before and after:
Skill Level: beginner to Intermediate
Made from mostly reused materials
How to Guide
Clean up and removal
Sands of time
Painting the nooks and crannies
Paint, paint, paint
*Tip – many thin coats are better than fewer thick coats. Below shows 2 coats. I ended up doing about 4 thin coats, with some light sanding between them for a smooth finish.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Paint, paint, paint!
Hang the mirror, fill the drawers and style it!
