Shabby to Chic Makeover


A Mid-Century Modern Rehab Diy!

Make mine walnut please!

Today I am sharing another one of my furniture restorations. I was out on the hunt for a set of nightstands for my bedroom and I found this poor little mid-century piece that had been hidden under thick unattractive beige paint for years.

I started with Citristrip for this one. I brushed it on kind of thick and let it sit in our hot garage for about 45 mins. Then all I had to do was use a plastic scrapper and the paint slid right off. I think this was probably the easiest project I have ever had.

I cleaned up the mess, washed it then wiped it down with denatured alcohol and let dry for 24 hrs. I did a little light sanding with 120 grit and finished with 220.

I stained it using my favorite stain.

Minwax - walnut

and like most of the pieces I have done it was polished off with a coat of furniture wax. 

I have been fine tuning my personal style for many decades, many decades!


But I think you can get the gist of my style. It is totally white and wood with mid-century modern influences. I would say that growing up mid-century may have something to do with that.
