Default Restored dressing table.

Hi all,
I got this dressing table off this site a few months back. The mirror was broken and there were cigarette burns all over the top of it.
I used Ronseal cupboard paint to paint it, which saved me loads of time and I found really good.
I covered the broken part of the mirror with photos and postcards.
I turned the mirror the other way as I'm still looking for a full length mirror for that room :)
Hope you all like it... I LOVE it :)

Lovely job on the dressing table. Ronseal cupboard paint looks good and very even coverage. Did you have to sand or use primer or undercoat or is this one of those miracle paints. Always looking for the easy way and have a couple of restoration projects lined up. Well done as drawers are not the easiest thing to do well (and keep them opening and closing properly). Eibhlin.

No i didn't sand or prime anthing! I just gave it a good scrub down is all. The Ronseal was expensive- 25 but I only needed 1 coat and it went on really well and evenly. only used about 2/3s of it so enough left over to use on a another project. Took a few days to fully dry though. I would really recommend it though, very easy to use and lovely and shiny when dry.
Thanks for all the positive feedback all :)

Yeah you can get lots of different colours... I really didn't to much to it at all, just gave it a good scrub. The ronseal is very thick and shiny and managed to cover everything up very easily....
