Side Table Transformation

Pin It
Several months ago I was asked by a co-worker to refinish a side table for her...which was super exciting!!  The table she wanted refinished was in great condition and had great lines to it.  It just needed a fresh coat of paint (the red was done with spray paint).  


The first thing I did was sand the entire piece and fill in any holes/dents.


Then I primed the piece - I wanted to make sure the red wouldn't show through.


I chose a goldish yellow paint for the table based on inspiration photos the client sent me.


 I got the paint for free from ACE Hardware 


After painting the piece yellow I sanded the edges to add a distressed look.


I then covered the table in a brown glaze to give it a more distressed look.


The last step to this project was a polycrylic - it gives the piece a professional look.


I love how the table turned out!!! 


 I would have never chosen yellow on my own but I think it looks great and I'm already using the remainder of the paint for some other projects I'm working on.
