Today my friend Felicia and I tackled a fun DIY furniture project!
Fun fact about Felicia… we’re basically second cousins through marriage (or something) but we didn’t meet until this year when we both moved to North Carolina within 20 minutes from each other! Small world right? I think it’s pretty awesome.
Anyway, we totally click because we’re both crafty and we enjoy a lot of the same things, so when she came to me about helping her paint a side table I was all about it! We weren’t really sure what we were doing or how it would turn out but it ended up being a success.
Like all good projects, it started with a drink! Two margaritas and we were on our way to transforming this piece of furniture.
We decided to replace them with these cute little crystal-like knobs
Then we began painting..
I didn’t get any photos of the distressing process because I was getting way too into it but we basically just used square sandpaper blocks to sand down all of the corners as well as some larger spots.
We were also worried (before distressing) that the brush creases were making it look funny but we found out that we were able to sand it down and smooth the look of the paint. It totally worked out!
Shout out to Felicia for suggesting that I turn this into a blog topic and for that margarita 😉
