I found this great piece sitting outside our dumpster. Too bad it was after the local kids tore out the shelves and drawers and smashed them... It would have made refurbishing it easier.
1) I gave it a good light sanding all over.
2) Then filled in the holes, dents and the laminent with wood puddy.
3) Lightly sanded the wood puddy to smooth it and match the final sanding.
4) I gave it a good coat of oil based primer.
I want to stencil a design on the sides and give the top a coat of polyurethane, to give it a final finish. Exspecially because I want to use it for craft supplies.
I hope to finish it within the next month... though I am packing to move, finishing some steam punk clothing and am not feeling well. Of which all I just want to get it all done and post the finished product!
