He wasn't looking so good when I first laid eyes on him. Orangey colored wood, ugly hardware....the usual.
Aunt Di saw his potential though with the curvy top drawer and nice looking side profile. It was the perfect size for a night table with lots of storage too.
I started out by filling the existing hardware holes with wood putty. The trick to getting a flawless finish is waiting until the putty is completely dry before you sand. A second application might be needed.
I gave the whole piece a light sanding and gave it a light coat of kilz primer before I started my first light coat of paint. I ended up doing three coats on the top and two on the rest of the piece sanding with fine paper in between each coat. The guy at the paint store recommended Shur-Line trim & touch up rollers when I was painting the front door. The results were fantastic so I used them again for this project along with my trusty Purdy brush.
This story ends with new glass hardware and a little distressing using 100 grit sandpaper.
