I needed a small dresser for the guest bedroom so I drove the car and went to the mall I opened my laptop and checked craigslist 🙂 I found this old console table , I liked its cute shape.
First I wanted to stain it “Dark Walnut Minwax Stain” but then I changed my mind and stained it black.
Inspired by the following picture, I decided on this color palette.
It was cracked in the middle so I applied a wood glue and wood putty. I gave it a good sanding just where I applied the glue and the putty. I didnt sand the whole piece I just cleaned it.
I used “Minwax Water Based Express Color Wiping Stain and Finish.” The decision to stain was to maintain the beauty of the original wood grain. I have the idea that spray paint would hide the look and the feel of the wood. Please share your experience If you think otherwise.
You can still see the wood grain
After some tough but eventually wise decisions, I applied the stain with an old T-shirt and wiped it off. Following Mr. Miyagi’s right circle left circle approach ( My husband insisted on me writing this sentence knowing that I have no clue who Mr. Miyagi is), the staining was a fun task to complete. In my opinion much easier than spray painting.
I waited for the paint to dry off. Then, I covered the inside of the drawers with an adhesive drawer liner.
The blue and silver knobs were the final and perfect touch to add a bit of color to the black table.
So do you like the black, white and blue palette?If you want to see the whole room plz check out this link
