Happy Wednesday Friends! At first glance, this little thrift store table looked pretty forlorn. I walked past her the first time, but came back after a few minutes. I had a feeling she would look much more cheerful with a little love and paint. Sure enough, it was a simple transformation and only cost $4!
The sad before had peeling stain and something wobbly going on with the legs. Upon closer inspection, I found that the bottom of the legs had extensions that were screwed in but a few of the screws were stripped producing the wobble, so I just took them off. The table was still plenty tall enough and much more secure.
I sanded lightly before painting. I am going to confess that I used spray paint--yep, spray paint! I understand that some people really don't like to use spray paint on furniture not intended for the patio, but it works for me. I probably wouldn't use it on a large piece of furniture and I recommend using a good spray paint. For this particular project, I really wanted to use this pale blue and I had a can sitting at home--need I say more? Plus, I think the happy after speaks for itself :)
Here's the pretty girl all dressed up with my latest thrifted milk glass!
Do you enjoy giving your thrifted finds a makeover? I would love to hear about your latest endeavor!
