Remember those polka-a-dotted knobs I showed you how to make here?
Remember how I promised that the next post would be the Ikea Changing Table that the knobs went on?
I believe I promised that almost a MONTH AGO! Ugh.
Well, here it is….
This was an $80 purchase off of Craig’s list.
Of course, I don’t have the before picture
(I never think of taking a before picture – which I need to work on).
Trust me, it was brown and and ugly and had fake knot holes.
I painted the changing table first with KILZ Premium Primer
This stuff is great because it prepares the laminate
to be painted with a latex paint.
PLUS it’s water and soap clean up!
Next, I lightly sanded it with 120 grit sandpaper to smooth the primer’s surface.
I wiped it down really well with a lint free rag and I was ready to paint.
I used a Valspar latex (satin) paint in a beige. I painted two coats and then distressed it lightly.
My last step was to add 3 coats of Polyacrylic to protect the surface.
This stuff is great. I use it on projects that have a “high” traffic area.
Next project is the crib.
I promise I will post the crib a whole lot sooner than I posted the changing table.
