Retrieve and transform old furniture is a great way to transform a room cheaply. Here, two bedside tables shabby wood was stacked, painted and revamped with legs and handles to create a super convenient style shabby chic .

The essential:

Floor Finish Water-based Passport Elite
Painting with chalk-clay American Paint Company, Freedom Road (gray) and Navajo White (white)
cloth 4 plates and screws fastening tabs 4 tabs wooden table Waddell model Queen Anne WL-2708 8 handles block sandpaper
Before you begin, clean the furniture with a cleaning without rinsing TSP type for removing grease or dust. Although it is not necessary with paint chalk, you can lightly sand the furniture with sandpaper of medium size (N o 150) to facilitate the adhesion of the paint. You're ready to paint!

With a brush, apply a coat of paint to the gray chalk (Freedom Road) on the cabinet and legs. Let dry for 3 hours, then apply a second layer. Wait until the second layer is completely dry.
Uniformly applied a coat of paint to the white chalk (Navajo White) on the cabinet and legs. Gray first two layers must be fully covered.
Before the white paint dries, wipe with a damp cloth edges of furniture, drawer sides and edges of feet to bring out the gray paint and create the illusion that the furniture has undergone wear time in some places. Once the desired result obtained, let dry, then apply a matte varnish thin layer. Let dry and apply a second coat of varnish.
Screw the mounting plates under the dresser, the four corners, then attach the wooden legs in the plates. Install the handles.
