I’ve wanted a dressing table/vanity unit for the longest time but was never willing to part with the crazy amounts of cash they demand. After finding this slightly beaten up one in a local charity shop, I knew I had to take it home and show it some love! It cost me just £15 so I was willing to give another upcycle session a go!
Here’s what I did to turn it from an unloved lump in to my beauty mecca….Firstly I removed all knobs and handles. Then I sanded the whole thing down (this took a while and required my days quota of elbow grease!). I then applied the first layer of primer.After around 4 coats of primer/undercoat, I then painted it (maybe 2-3 coats) with my chosen colour. I spray painted the knobs and let the whole thing have a good old dry. Rain stopped proceedings a few time throughout….Here is my final result…Please check out my first upcycle attempt on a little unit right here. What do you think?
