I found this free office sideboard at the local community center. I was so excited because I knew a painted sideboard could be repurposed into bedroom furniture!
This is the original credenza sideboard sitting outside the local community center. I was super excited to find this piece.
We had to pull it apart to get it in our car, so we took the top laminate piece off to find that the 3 bottom pieces were all individual. We removed the legs as we wouldn’t be needing those. We’ll be using the counter top for another project at a later date.
I pulled out the drawers and doors. I lightly sanded the pieces to get it ready for painting.
After sanding I cleaned the pieces with denatured alcohol.
I painted each piece with Black Apple Barrel Multi Surface Satin Acrylic Paint. I painted 2 coats letting it dry between each coat.
We measured the tops of all 3 pieces. We bought a Craft Master’s Pine Laminated Project Panel and cut it into 3 parts for the tops.
I sanded the tops and corners and wiped them off.
I paint the tops with more of the Black Apple Barrel Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint. I painted on 2 coats and let it dry between each coat. I love the way it soaked into the wood and how you could still see the wood grain.
After it dried, we screwed the top onto the base of each piece.
The set was finished and ready to go in our home.
My husband had been wanting new night stands with some sort of drawers or doors and this fit in perfect.
We put the other piece by our rocking chair as a side table and inside we store our extra bedding.
