We scored this at a flea market for $50... it was so unique I had to keep it. Half of it opens into a trunk, the other half is full of drawers for storage!
ALL of our furniture is black so I wanted to throw some color on it and play a little but my husband wasn't having that. So, I sanded it a little to scuff up to surface, primed, applied a coat of black oil based paint, sanded, added another coat of paint, then a coat of polyurethane since it's going to be our new coffee table. Normally I would repeat the sanding and painting process once again, but since I was doing it for myself and needed to get it out of the way, I only did it once.
Neet huh?!? I thought so too!
