So I took it apart and sanded the frame. Then I wiped it off with a tac cloth to make sure it was really clean. I gave it a coat of Kilz primer, which I really love. I then spray painted it white and let it dry really good. I upholstered the top and this is how it turned out. Pretty huh?
It really did turn out nice, but it's just a little too white for me. I decided to distress it a bit, so I sanded it in a few places and then used some dark maple stain on it to define the lines. Much, much better. It just puts a big smile on my face, maybe it's the pretty blue upholstery, or it could be that I got a project done so quickly.
