The awesome thing about painting furniture white is that if you ever tire of it, it is a great base for so many other colors. Today, amazing friends, I thought I would share one of the pieces I used to have in our old house that I no longer have room for in our new house.
And yep I painted it…again!
This is what this pretty little table looked like when I originally found it at a yard sale for $20 several years ago:
It had pretty details but was showing some wear, especially on the top:
I originally painted it Cottage White. It is the very first piece of furniture I ever painted using DIY chalk paint!
Here is what it looked like before redo number two:
As you can see, it still looked great. I just thought it would be fun to change it up a bit.
And here is what this little table looks like now:
Pretty in blue too, eh?
This is Behr’s Gray Morning made into DIY chalk paint. (Recipe HERE.)
I only gave it one coat so a lot of the white from underneath would show through. A quick sanding with 220 grit sandpaper gave me exactly the look I was going for.
I wish I had a place for it at our new house, but unfortunately I do not so this will be heading to my booth.
I sealed it with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax, and then added this pretty glass knob I found at HomeGoods:
Sometimes they have really pretty knobs for super cheap. This came in a pack of six or eight.
The original machine is still inside. That’s the cord you see hanging down from underneath. These sewing tables make fantastic side tables!
I left some of the wood inside unpainted…
This isn’t very functional as far as storage goes, but you could at least stash the remotes in that little pocket on the door.
Remember my baskets I spray painted? They make great props! See their makeover HERE.
That’s just one of the pieces I refreshed to put in my booth, but everything else stayed the same color they were before. I hope you enjoyed this redo of a redo!
If you loved this color, you’ll love this makeover too:
See how it looks now HERE!
It is Thanksgiving on Thursday here in the U.S. so I won’t be here, but I want you to know that I am SO very thankful for each and every one of you who show up here faithfully to see what I am up to. I appreciate you more than words can say.
I hope my friends in the states have a blessed Thanksgiving!
I’ll see you next week sharing what I did with these frames to create artwork for my dining room walls!
