This cupboard can be used as a bedside table, a coffee table, or in any other spot for a bit of storage and a splash of colour! I think it would be perfect for a little girl to store doll supplies in its spacious interior.
It was in pretty good shape when I picked it up, and I know many would like it just the way it was, but I wanted to practice working with laminate and my business is all about colour!
The first task was to remove the black plastic stripe along the front, remove all the hardware, and take off the doors so that I could get at the inside. Every inch of the laminate, in good condition and not peeling at all, was sanded with coarse grade sandpaper.
Final coat …
Glossy varathane protection…Then it was on to the hardware, much the more troublesome task. The steel handles were coated in tough black plastic which only scraped off with a tremendous amount of effort.
I ended up soaking them in stripper solution for a while.Which made work a lot easier!!They were sanded, primed, painted and varathaned along with the other door hardware, and they all turned out perfectly! The biggest challenge was remounting the doors. It was ultimately accomplished and the little cupboard is good to go!
