This past weekend I scored this piece of furniture at a garage sale for only 10 dollars!!  What made it even better was that it was already taped and primed.  Two less steps for me to do!!  Woohoo.

Since it was already primed the only prep work I had to do was to sand it smooth with fine sand paper.

Next I used Rustoleum Heirloom White spray paint to paint it.   The best way to spray is to use quick motions and very lightly.  Avoid over-spraying.  It’s better to do one more coat than to have drips.    I did three coats to ensure even coverage.

Once the paint was totally dry I used a medium grit sandpaper to distress the edges and corners. I love distressing furniture, it adds so much character.

Here is the finished product!  For now I plan on using it as a nightstand.  I still need to add new knobs and accessories to dress it up a bit, but I must say I love it!
