This is a piece that I just found recently at my local Goodwill. It is was a bit "rough around the edges" but I knew it had lots of potential! So, I scooped it up quickly and with a new "Makeover" it has become a new "primitively perfect" piece for my kitchen countertop!
So, the first thing I needed to do was get it ready for some"Primming" up! So, off with the lid...the humps...and the ugly painting! So, to my craft room it went! I simply took my pliers and removed the screws that held on the lid. Then, I took my jigsaw and cut off the humps to make a straight back. Lastly, I lightly sanded the whole piece to prep it for painting.
Then I undercoated it with Black craft paint and then with a White craft paint topcoat. After that was completly dry, I applied Dark Walnut Stain all over and wiped it back off. Replaced the white knob with a wooden knob that I also stained with the Dark Walnut.
This is just a closer look of the paint finish, ahhhhhh nice and prim!
