♥Side Table Before & After♥
Before and Afters are one of my favorite things to look at on blogs. I love seeing how things can be transformed from drabulous to fabulous:)
My daughter wanted a bedside table and had found some that she really liked at Pottery Barn. While very pretty, they are also very expensive!
me: Well, dear daughter, this is the perfect excuse to hit some thrift stores and see what we can find!!
11 yr. old daughter: Noooooo!!!!! (moans, moans, and more moans)
Lets just say she hasn't been bit by the "thrifting" bug and I don't see it happening anytime soon:)
Oh well, off we went moans and all and ended up finding this table for $9.99.
Gorgeous right?! Well, I saw the potential!
I'm sure daughter agreed with me just so we could get out of the store and be done with it!
The finish on the table was peeling badly,
and there was some water stains on top.
But, overall a good piece, with beautiful lines.
This was also my first time using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I did have to scrape off all the old yellow varnish that was peeling, but other than that, no other prep was needed with ASCP.
I did two coats of chalk paint in Old White and finished with her clear wax.
I just lightly brushed over the handles with the same paint.
Love the curvy lines.
*Btw, the picture on the table was another thrift find that I will post about another day.
Daughter ♥'s her table!
Have a great day,
Wow us Wednesdays
