Matching side tables/nightstands are hard to come by without paying a fortune. When your not forking out a bunch of cash, they will probably look like this before picture.... check out my Instagram on this project!!

I love real wood projects but painting laminate was a great alternative. AND you use half the paint then real wood haha. Hope you enjoy!

Here is the BEFORE! These are made of laminate. Very sturdy mini dresser type tables. The PERFECT size for a master bedroom!!

These were such a great upcycle for me to do! I didn’t think they would look as great as they did considering the before picture!

they did have a lot of water damage to the top! So I read a blog post somewhere saying that you could sand out water damage on laminate. So I gave it a shot.

This paint “dune grass” from country chic worked amazing!! The coverage was incredible. This was only 2 Coats!

This is what the laminate looked like after I sanded out the water damage.

Some of the water damage needed levelling out still so I used bondo and sanded it down. And than primer over top of the bondo! It worked great! I was super happy with how bondo helped.

I love bondo because it dries within 30 minutes and your able to keep working after!

i just can’t get enough of how easy using country chic paint it!!

    What primer did you use and did you primer the entire piece before painting?
