My mom picked up an awesome side table for me at the Thrift Shop for $10 a few weeks back. I figured the long Labor Day weekend was the perfect time to conduct a makeover.
Well here is the not yet so fabulous $10 table………..
I LOVE the sea foam green color that I used for my daughter’s chalkboard dresser and the black chalkboard paint really has great contrast against its brightness. I just so happened to have 2 cans of spray paint that were similar to that color so this was the perfect opportunity to use them and I always have chalkboard paint on hand (I love chalkboard paint like I love Lego base plates)
My project list:
- Table in need of love
- Spray Paint
- Sassy New Knobs
- Chalkboard paint
- Painters tape
- Paint Brush
First I wiped down the table and used de-glosser to take off some of the finish. Took out the drawer and tossed the knobs. Then it was time for painting. I taped off the top of the table with painters tape and newspaper and taped off the drawer (so I was only painting the face of it). I spray painted both the drawer and table…..took about one can of paint and about 3 coats. I took off the tape and let the table sit for 2 nights.
After letting the table sit I taped off the part I painted prior and then spread my chalkboard paint on the top section it took about 2 coats.
After letting it sit again for a few hours I added my sassy new knobs……..
I love these knobs!! They remind me of old school soda fountain stools…..I know random, but they do!!
So then the issue was what in the world am I going to do with another table. Well just so happens that we needed a new nightstand so it worked out.
And bonus!! Now I can write reminders for myself or the husband……or just a morning message.
Thanks for visiting!!
More makeovers to come………
