DIY Mint Green Changing Table

A friend of ours gave us this little mid century credenza a few months ago. We decided to paint it and use it as a changing table in the nursery. I'm really happy with how it turned out and have to give all the credit to Dan. Dan did all the work for this while I supervised.

The original piece is made of wood and laminate, so we (Dan) first sanded the entire thing and then sprayed several coats of paint on it. We couldn't get the spray paint to look smooth without streaks, so the next step was to paint it by hand. Poor Dan put a lot of work into this.


 Because of the number of paint coats we put on the piece, the drawers stick and don't slide too easily. We are still working on this. I special ordered tapered mid century modern wooden legs and replaced the metal ones.

Paint Color: Sweet Pea- Olympic Paint
Custom Legs- Thirteen Colonies
