side table redo

My Internet has been out for a week so that means I had to take a break from blogging. It was a good thing because I was able to start and finish a lot of fun projects. . . . which means more fun posts to come. First was this side table I purchased from a thrift store for 15 dollars (the D.I.)



Paint it with primer first. Then . . .
(spray painted it with vintage gold from home depot. It took 2 1/2 cans)

Stained a side at a time. ( this is my first time staining and I learned the hard way. Cover edge to edge then wipe it off with a lightly damp towel or rag. Like The next picture, go from edge to edge. DON'T stop half way and wipe off then think you can do the other half, you will get a large noticeable line) If this does happen just cover it all again with stain and wipe it off again.

(notice the vintage milk crate from this post)

The whole living room shot. I hate the color of the couches but FREE is FREE. So I decided to add some new pillows to match my new end table to bring in some color and tie it all togehter.

  2. Looks better than it ever did!! What a great deal for a super storage pc.
