This was my first solo attempt following the workshop in Berry: a lovely grey bedside table for my daughter's girly bedroom.
I bought two identical pine bedside tables, I transformed the first one in the workshop and it is now in our bedroom. I went solo on this second one.
I bought the L'Essential Botanics paint in Belgian Linen, sanding gloves, Cling On paintbrush and Mezzie + Frank wax from This Old House. Be careful, This Old House no longer stock this brand of paint but they have other great alternatives. I got the wipes from Bunnings.
These are the materials I used!
The side table came from my local Buy, Sell, Swap Facebook group. I think I paid $30 for two of those.
These are the steps I followed!
I lightly sanded all visible side of the side table using the gloves which are dead easy to use.
I then wiped the piece with the Cleaning wipes
I applied the paint using the Cling On brush. I let the first coat dry overnight.
I applied a second slightly watered down coat.
The last and final step was to apply the wax with a cloth and buff the bedside table. The smell of this wax is wonderful.
I put in the lovely white knobs come from Few and Far in Berry.
I let this piece 'cure' in the garage for a few days before moving it to my daughter's bedroom.
I did all of this in the comfort of the quiet, calming space of my garage or as I like to call it my "Workshop"!
