The first step was to start sanding the drawers. I really liked the cute checkers design in the front. It was actually part of the original veneer design. I started sanding it with 120 then 220 sandpaper grit.
Mid Century Modern Bedroom Set Update
I purchased this mid century modern bedroom set on my local Facebook marketplace to give it a new look. The top was white formica while the body was a dark brown finish. I didn't like that and decided to go with a light design.
Once I sanded the first drawer I loved what I saw! The checkers pattern showed even more I had hoped and the wood was actually quite light!
I sanded all drawers
The whole set was sanded down. ( drawers ) and the rest was going to be painted white!
I liked the drawers but decided to do a light white wash on them to compliment the white paint I was going to use on the body.
Once it was all done I applied a polycylic clear coat. If you like this transformation and would like to see more in real time follow me on Instagram @andreapalmai
