SO, for now and until we buy our next house, we're stuck with this lovely bedroom suite. It was the first 'grown-up' furniture I bought for my first apartment after college. It was cheap and it is horrible.
And here is the carve out where the plastic thingy can pull right out.
I've recently been thinking how in the world can I refinish this stuff to make it look updated. Afterall, it wouldn't be a complete waste of time if I made it look somewhat presentable as we could use it in a guest bedroom in our next house.
I've done google searches hoping to stumble onto a blog that has done this exact exercise, but have had no luck. I do have a couple of ideas, but I thought if I pushed it out there I bet I could get some of you really creative types to come up with something far better than I could ever come up with on my own.
SO, any suggestions? Any experience updating old cheap laquered furniture? I just can not bear to look at this stuff for much longer! You'll get street cred of course when the project is done!
