Thrifty Table Transformed!

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 :)

  6. Fabulous transformation! Paint has got to be the most wonderful medium to work with. And to think someone gave that adorable table away when all it needed was a facelift :) Love the color you chose. The milk glass looks great with it too.
