I've had this little round table for quite a few years. It was the last piece of totally ugly golden oak furniture in our house. It's from about the 80's when pretty much everything we owned was golden oak (yuck, what was I thinking?)... No offense if you like that look.. But it is so not me!!! I decided it was definitely time to give this baby a much needed makeover! I just wish I could give myself a makeover as easily :) lol...
After a light sanding I wiped the dust off with a shop rag and then put up on my make shift work table to spray a coat of primer. I like to use Rustoleum spray primer... It works on pretty much everything, even plastic.
One coat of primer and it was looking pretty. I even considered keeping it white at this point...
But since it was going into my stairwell, which is also white, I decided to go with the color Espresso which matches my stair rail.
Here the cute little table is all finished in the base of our stairwell... Notice how the color of the table compliments the stair railing. I know I still need to paint the walls and get a mirror or a couple of accessories on the wall, but I wanted to finish the table first before I started looking for what else to hang there.
Table makeover cost $8. One can of primer and one can of paint. The table is totally refreshed and like new again!
I don't necessarily love all of the accessories as they currently are on the table (I need to find some better hydrangeas), but for now (until I find something better) they will do. I found the adorable little shabby chic style lamp at Kirklands a few weekends ago. It was only $15... I love me a good bargain!!!
Until next time,
