To transform the affordable cabinet, Camille used Zinsser primer, British paint, oak half-rounds, and spray paint.
Sharing the details with a popular Facebook group, she first painted the cabinet legs with Supercheap Auto enamel gold spray paint and primed the laminate with Zinsser primer.
When the laminate was dry, she painted each piece white with Bunnings British paint.
The long oak semicircular molds were cut to size and then carefully painted white and glued to the front of the cabinet with Tarzan’s grip wood glue.
Once all the pieces were dry, Camille built the side table and decorated it with books, white decor, a map, and a camera.
Camille also said she made two matching cabinets for her house.
