I’ve written before about how to update vintage furniture. I absolutely LOVE buying vintage, thrifted furniture, but I always mix it with modern decor or update it to keep it from looking too stale. Lately, I’ve been really into block-painting furniture. It used to be HUGE when people were dipping the legs of vintage furniture in color to modernize it.
Lately, I’ve noticed more people sectioning off an area of their furniture and painting it one color.
Over a year ago, I purchased a midcentury nightstand from a local thrift store for $8. The top of it was in bad condition, but I was hoping that a good scrub and possibly some sanding would remedy the situation. Fast forward to now, this little guy has been sitting in my living looking rather sad and stained.
