Hello awesome Friends! I’m so glad you stopped by today! Actually I’m so glad you stop by every day. 🙂 Remember a week or so ago when I shared this little unfinished table that I painted, one my Dad had made several years ago?
See that post HERE if you missed it.
Well when I brought this home from my parent’s attic, I also picked up its big sister:
My parents and I did craft markets for about 15 or so years and these are tables my Dad built. My Mom would paint scenes on top of them. They had a few left over that have just been collecting dust in their attic, and like I said when I shared the first table, my Mom has been offering these to me for quite some time to make over for my booth.
I finally took her up on her offer. It was the fact that they were unfinished that made me apprehensive about painting them, however I gave the first one the petroleum jelly treatment to create a bit of a distressed look and it turned out pretty cute. I have included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I used.
This one got some classic stripe action:
For this one, I started by spray-priming the table with Rustoleum spray primer. It was a pretty windy day so I used my HomeRight Spray Shelter…
The unfinished wood really soaked up the primer, but it was good enough.
Then I painted it in a 50/50 mix of Annie Sloan’s French Linen and Pure White. I still love that color and have yet to find a knock-off color that I like as much. (Or maybe I haven’t tried that hard. 😉 )
The coverage on this color is amazing. I did two coats, but it probably could have done with one.
Isn’t that lamp a cutie? It’s one of a set I bought last year at HomeGoods for the console table behind my sofa.
A little sanding and a coat of Annie Sloan clear soft wax to seal and protect.
The handle is one I buy ALL the time from Hobby Lobby. ( I call them Hooby Looby and always have to resist typing it that way ha ha.)
The drawer got some pretty contrasting paper…
Now I’ll definitely be picking up the few small tables they still have left. Both of these were really simple and quick to paint!
I have a super cute makeover to share on Tuesday, this little table and chair set:
I actually found the table at a different place from the chairs a few months apart! How lucky was that?!
UPDATE: No need to wait…see how these pieces look now HERE!
Have a great weekend! 🙂
