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.
