You might remember that I started painting it and I posted this progress picture:
Well, here it is today!
I went over my purple paint job with a dark stain unevenly, and wiped off most of it almost immediately. It gave it this cool texture and variety in colors that I really love.
It still looks old, but now it looks cool-old instead of lame-old. I'm still very new to redoing furniture, but the basic steps I took were as follows:
- Took off the door, hinges, and handles.
- Filled major holes/cracks with wood filler.
- Sanded to get the shiny layer off the laminate.
- Painted two layers of paint.
- Applied stain.
- Applied polyacryclic.
