Hello lovely Friends! It’s my favorite day of the month…Trash to Treasure Tuesday!! The second Tuesday of every month, four of my favorite trash to treasure makers and I get together to bring you a fabulous makeover on the cheap, and you know that’s my absolute favorite!
Today I’m sharing how I gave this little $20 thrift store sewing machine table a cottage-inspired makeover:
I love the height of these tables to use as regular side tables.
I was wandering through Michaels one day when I came across Americana Chalky Finish Paint by Deco Art (affiliate link). I have wanted to try it and with my 50% off coupon, an 8 ounce jar only cost me $5. I planned to use it on one of my March Madness projects, but just couldn’t decide what to test it out on.
Then the other day I pulled this little table out to give it a try.
The color I chose is called Refreshing:
It’s a minty green color, and a bit different than the hues I normally choose.
This makes me think of a sweet guest room in a quaint little cottage.
With a vintage floral quilt on the bed.
This only took two coats, and it went on nicely. I had originally done a two toned look with an ivory color on the top, but I quickly decided I didn’t like it and painted the whole thing in the green. I sanded then sealed with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax.
I love the original pulls that came with this little table, but I wanted something less formal, and more fun. I had these that I found at Ross a couple of years ago but just never found the right project for them.
I think they’re perfect.
Painting this little piece gave it a whole new personality!
Don’t go anywhere! My fabulous thrifty makeover friends are sharing trash to treasure transformations of their own today!
Check out what they did with these finds at the links below!
I’ll be back Thursday sharing how I added a some farmhouse charm to my kitchen, plus how I updated this wire caddy:
