Jeep2 just give it a try: what have you got to loose? If you get a piece of furniture for free and only spend a small amount on materials there is little loss if it doesn't work out but immense satisfaction if it does!! ;-)
There is a wealth of information on the internet and also here: you could post a pic of your project and ask for help or advise. And if your paint job does not look good - well it can be sanded and started again. Go on give it a try. And post your before and after photos when you do: we'd love to see them!
