Hey, y'all! Today I have a little table makeover to share with you.
A coworker of mine bought a small table from a yard sale a while back, and she recently asked me to transform it. She picked out a spray paint color and brought the table to school for me to take home and makeover. Here it is before...
I started the makeover by filling in a few dings and dints with wood filler.
With the drawer front, I did two layers of wood filler to make sure the groove caused by the old handle was no longer visible. Then it was time for priming.
When I started to prime the table, I didn't have a new back piece to replace the torn one. If I would have, I would have attached it before priming, but since I didn't, I went ahead and sprayed the piece with Kilz spray primer. After giving the primer time to dry, I sanded it with 220 grit sand paper and gave it a few coats of the blue my coworker picked out: Valspar's Tropical Oasis. My dad cut a new back for the table from thin plywood. After priming and spraying it, I attached it to the piece with small nails. I then distressed the edges of the piece with sandpaper and gave the entire table a coat of Polycrylic to seal it. After that, the makeover was complete!
I added a knob I bought at Michaels as the crowning jewel of this little table.
The blue was the perfect transformative color.
This little table looks so much better than before! My coworker loves it, and I love how spray paint can transform an ordinary piece of furniture into something special. What have you used spray paint to transform lately?
