To see out 2017 I’m sharing my final project for the year! It was a close call for this to be an uncompleted project on my list for a very up and down year! But somehow from somewhere, I found the kick in the butt I needed to complete this very scratched and outdated corner unit on Christmas Eve. The corner unit has been a part of the family for some time. You can probably tell because it’s from back when TV’s used to fit into the cabinet. So I toyed with giving it away but just love the glass doors too much to part with it. Sharing our Farmhouse Corner Unit Makeover.
Farmhouse Corner Unit Makeover
- 80 and 120 grit sandpaper plus sander
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Farmhouse White
- Paint Brush
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Bonding Agent
- Old Book Pages
- Mod Podge
- Door Pulls of your choice
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Beeswax
Step 1 – Mix up your paint, bonding agent and water in a plastic cup of a ratio of 1:1:1. Let sit while you prep your piece and let the paint mixture all bond together. Remove all hardware and glass panels.
Step 2 – Take your sander and 80 grit sandpaper to remove all of the shine from your furniture piece.
Step 3 – Start painting! This corner unit took 3 coats to achieve this chippy look. Make sure that each coat is completely dry before moving onto the next coat.
Step 4 – Using your sander and 120 grit sandpaper, distress to your liking.
Step 5 – The shelf once where the DVD player used to sit was super hard to paint. So using some book pages and mod podge I stuck them to the shelf instead to give a nice Vintage Farmhouse look.
Step 6 – Give the entire piece a wax to protect.
Step 7 – Pop your hardware back on and glass windows.
Now for the fun part! Add all of your bits and pieces and there you have a nice freshly made over corner unit! A stack of old vintage suitcases is much better than a TV don’t you think?
