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!
the original buffet table found on craigslist for 150
dont mind the stuff
contemplated cuting out the bottom middle two drawers and turning it into a desk but decided to avoid the headache
Last minute decision to use the wrapping paper in pink that i had laying around
ran out of pink paint so used leftover wall paint inside the cabinets
i wanted it extra girlie therefore i added pink and purple acrylic paint over the silver paintable wallpaper

    @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.
