Hi there, sweet friends, and welcome to Furniture Fixer Upper Day!! Were you expecting a cute little tote makeover today? I was too, until my friends reminded me that it’s the fourth Thursday of the month already! Where has March gone? So instead, I will be pulling out a simple makeover showing how easily you can update a side table with paint. Just paint alone can do wonders!
You’ll find my talented friends’ makeovers at the bottom, so be on the lookout for those!
The piece I chose for today is one I shared in 2020 when the world was in chaos, so it may be new to you:
It was offered to me by the sweetest lady who had several pieces she could no longer hold onto.
The rest of them are all absolute treasures, and I’ll link to their makeovers at the bottom!
This table is such a great example of how just paint alone can really change things up!
I had originally planned to sand the top of this table and stain it since some of the stain had started to come off:
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
However, after sanding with my sander, I could see that it was actually veneer and had already been sanded before down below the veneer:
Here is how this simple table got a major update with just paint!
I don’t usually do a ton of distressing, but I liked it for this piece to add some character.
Using an electric sander is a great way to easily get this look.
And that pull was a sweet finishing touch to add a little more charm!
This could be cute in just about any room!
I had hoped to find some antique wheels to add to the legs. I thought they would add a bit more charm, but I couldn’t come up with a complete matching set.
I love this green and if you have a lot of greenery, it is almost a neutral.
This pull is one of my favorites from Hobby Lobby…
Sweet and simple!
And as promised, here are four more fantastic makeovers from my friends!

These are all the pieces I was blessed with when I got this table…she used the magic word “FREE”, and I came running lol:
