Drab to Fab Furniture Upcycling »
InstructionsAfter doing a small test, I found that even with the Ultra Bond the milk paint was not adhering well to the cleaned varnish -- so I opted to completely strip the piece first.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Retro / Vintage
Eco friendly stripper, milk paint with ultra bond, sandpaper and furniture wax.
What was your inspiration?
I found the absolute PERFECT old library shelf for my hallway. It was a steal of a deal -- just the wrong color! I remembered looking at shelves which had been painted white with color in the back and thought I could do the same with this beast...
What are you most proud of?
I managed to strip, repaint and reseal this within 1 week during evenings and over the weekend.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time to test and make sure that the new paint will adhere. If not, take the time to strip it because it will be worth it in the end.
