Second Hand Furniture Makeover




This was the makeover project i did for the decor section of the magazine i'm working for. The table was $90 and the chair was $30. I removed the ugly red vinyl seat cover and replaced it with a more updated black and white fabric. I got some help from Joakim with the sanding, then primed it and painted it glossy black.

I loaned the items on the table from CAM, Robinsons. The black carpet, white room divider screen, plant, pot and the lamp are all from IKEA, the white shoes are from Chloe. The photo shoot then took place in our living room. All in all the final cost was $270 for a brand new looking vanity table and bench. But i reckon if you already have the basic items such as paintbrushes and stapler guns it might be even cheaper.
