My father gave us 3 big black melamine bookcases. We lack a little storage in the house, so that’s good. Nevertheless, their look definitely betrays their age. We’ll try to fix it.
Here are the 3 melamine libraries before recovery and modifications.
We remove the strips of fields.
We remove the textured laminate.
Here is the result on the first two libraries.
And the last.
It remains to paint the fields and find them pretty handles. I believe the end result will not be bad. And you, have you reclaimed melamine furniture? Are you satisfied with the result?
If your project is on a larger scale and you are considering painting the entire piece of furniture, I suggest you this article from Canal Vie on the subject. Good reading!
