Tea and Forget-me-nots
A coffee table is a good choice for a simple upcycling project. They often have easy-to-paint, flat surfaces.
Cleaned the piece with TSP cleaner. Repaired a few scratches with wood filler.
Slick Stick is a primer for shiny and laminate surfaces. You can use it instead of sanding.
I chose the classic white, Dixie Belle’s Fluff. A neutral colour is a good choice when there are extra decorative elements.
Covered the holes left by the original dividers with bamboo strips. Painted and glued into place with Gorilla wood glue.
A table top is a high traffic area. So, I sealed it with two coats of Clear Coat in Satin.
To complement the transfer, I chose a handle with a floral design. I cleaned them with Barkeepers Friend and an old toothbrush.
Other than the drying time between coats, it was a quick makeover. And as with all good DIY furniture projects, this one is more functional with better storage now too.
