Makeover Project #5: painted bedside table

A simple paint-over of wooden furniture can transform a piece for next to nothing. No need for shopping!
 
Problem
  • IKEA stool used as a side-table showing signs of wear.
  • Dark wood does not match new colour scheme.

Solution
  • Paint over with white paint (lightly sand all surfaces, coat with two layer of undercoat and two top-coats)
  • Dress table with dramatic slightly oversized lampshade on existing base (the size of shade is balanced by the table)

Project cost = £20. Undercoat and Satinwood paint, plus £1.50 for lampshade on eBay. Original (unfinished) stool was around £7
