However it had wonderful details and was definitely worth transforming.
I used my heat gun to carefully remove all the damaged veneer and then sanded it until I had a smooth surface.
Once that was done it was time to paint. I have lots of different kinds of paint in my stash. Chalk, milk, latex and even some acrylic. This time I decided on latex. I get questions all the time about the paints I use and which I think is best. Honestly it all depends on the surface you start with. I’ve used all kinds of paint and I like them all for different reasons. In this case I had a sanded, almost raw, wood surface so pretty much any paint would’ve adhered. I try to use what I have and since I had pink paint in latex that’s what I picked. No real science to it my friends…sorry for the disappointment.
A little distressing and some fabric to cover the matching stool and there you go. Pretty pink perfection!
