DIY Old Buffet Table Turned Makeup Vanity

$20
2 Days
Medium

I had this god-awful looking buffet table that I couldnt figure out what to do with. I spray painted most of it with a flat black paint, painted 2 of the drawers pink and used mod podge to put some old wrapping paper that I had on hand on the front of the pink drawers. The top drawers I had some paintable wallpaper that I placed on the front and painted a satin nickel color. Add some new handles and heres how it turned out!

    @Lucy Fraser thank you! I sealed it with 2 coats of modpodge and so far nothing has peeled up. just have to be sure you dont apply the paper to the sides of the doors so when you open and close it, it wont rip the paper.
