Hello awesome friends and welcome back! Today, I’m redoing this drum table that has been sitting in my booth for well over a year now:
I redid this table a few years ago, and my Mom claimed it right away for her home. When I picked up a smaller drum table a couple of years ago, she wanted that one instead because it fit her space better, so she gave this one back to me. I took it to my booth as is.
It has just been sitting there taking up space for what seems like forever.
You can barely see it in this photo from my last booth update:
When I mentioned that it’s probably the piece that has been in my booth the longest at the moment, one of my smart readers, Sharon, suggested I paint it to match the dresser I had in there.
I never even thought of that, but I loved the idea! I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
This is the dresser she was referring to, the only dresser I have in there at the moment:
So, on the next visit to my booth, I brought home the drum table and gave it a fresh coat of Fluff to match the dresser.
Then I pulled out what was left of the Rose Celebration transfer I used on the dresser:
Remember I used part of it on this basket also?
So what I had left wasn’t much.
I had wanted to add a bit of it on the top and cascade it down the front of the drawer, but I really only had enough to do the drawer…
But I think it was just enough!
I’m always amazed at what a fresh coat of paint can do, but those transfers work miracles too!
Because this was a creamy color underneath, if I sanded, the creamy color would show through. Chalk paint does require the slightest amount of sanding to make it buttery smooth, so I did very lightly sand it all over with 220 grit sandpaper, but I tried to not hit the edges too hard.
It looks like I sanded those areas to reveal the wood beneath, right?
As I was working on this, I got a call from the Antique Mall where I have my booth. Someone was asking how much I would be willing to discount the dresser for. Wouldn’t it be something if I redid this table to match the dresser and the dresser sold before this could make it back to my booth? The dresser did not sell though, so I’m excited to match these two up.
I painted the pull with the same Rustoleum Champagne mist spray that I used on the dresser pulls…
You can see how I apply sealer using the blue sponge in this video:

I hope y’all enjoyed this simple update today!
And thank you, Sharon, for the great idea!
Remember I mentioned that I was working on a much-needed room-redo during my week off?
Well, it was our laundry room and I’ll be back to share it on Tuesday:
Have a fantastic weekend and stay safe out there!
