Every now and then, I search craiglist for random furniture to makeover. I was pretty excited when I came across this table for $4.
I have been wanting a end table for my living room for quite a while, but just had not came across anything that would fit. When I saw the $4 table, I figured even if it didn’t fit, I could make it over and find a spot for it. I chose an almost white color in chalk paint, removed the hardware and got to painting. Painting all the curves and grooves added in more time then I thought, but luckily it wasn’t too chilly outside yet.
While painting the outside, I thought I would leave the inside alone. It was a really nice wood, and the doors will always be closed…but then I decided a pop of color would be more fun. I went through my paint stash and came across a fun deep turquoise color. Instantly, I was excited about this choice. I added on a few coats of the turquoise, and it was almost done.
The last step, I chose to spray paint the hardware with a rustoleum in antique bronze. Once it was all dry, I put it back together and found it a cute little home next to our living room chair.
Oh yeah, it has also proven to be the perfect storage table for our games, I can’t believe how much it holds!
