$5 - Drab to Fab - Remember how I found this guy at a yard sale last weekend?
Boring right? Well, I had fun plans for this funky table!
I love the detail on the front of this cabinet table, but it looks overall dated... I love the hidden storage too!
We needed a coffee table, and wanted something that would fit right in our living room that is arranged at an angle, hence one of the reasons I chose this table with all the angles!
I also wanted a fun pop of soft color, so here is the AFTER! :)
I love the way it adds a splash of color without being to overwhelming. I'm pretty happy with the outcome!
I had so much fun working with the glaze on this project, giving it that aged beauty.
First I sanded it down and removed the hardware
It's a messy dirty job but somebodies gotta do it! ;)
I chose this soft teal blue color from the designs in our rug, they look so pretty together!
I used a dark esspresso colored glaze, that stuff is so much fun to work with! It makes everything look more glamourous... how boring would this piece be if it was just a solid color?
Next we spray painted the knob with a metalic oil rubbed bronze to give it new life! I may be a little obsessed with this stuff... we also painted the gold old handles on our entertainment center this color too.
That stuff saved me a bunch of $$, rather than buying new knobs just because I hated the color... we simply changed them. And it is super durable too!
Family approved! ;)
Trash to treasure...this was a fun project! I'm sure you'll be seeing more soon....
