A Very Simple Refinishing Project

I am linking with Susan for Metamorphosis Monday at

and Kim's Wow Us Wednesdays at

I had a very small project which has been sitting in the garage for quite sometime. I finally got the energy to work on it.

I bought this little occasional table from one of the other vendors in the store for $12. The finish was in real bad shape but the table itself is still solid, legs are pretty sturdy and not wobbly.

I took it out on the driveway to start working on it. I sanded it really well and then primed it and let it dry overnight.

Then took a leftover paint that I found in the garage and started painting. I let it dry and sanded again and repainted.

I pretty much followed Kim's way of refinishing but of course, I wasn't expecting it to be as good as hers. I had saved one of her blogs showing how to do it and it worked pretty well. Thanks Kim!

What do you think?

I buffed it with Minwax paste afterwards. It went back to the store to sell in my booth. It's ok if it does not sell because I can use it to display small items that I sell there.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Susan and Kim for hosting.

You did a great job! If I were you, I'd be hoping it didn't sell. But I bet it will!

Great job Christine. I've seen these tables, but never one with two shelves. Very pretty.

Christine, what an adorable table. Your work is really very very good. Also belated happy Birthday to you and yours. I hope it was a day filled with blessings.

Good job! And yes, great little display table!

Very impressive, Christine, great refinishing job -- plus, I love your idea of displaying the small items that you sell on the table. I guarantee if you just put a little sign that says, "Display table is also for sale, if interested" that you will get somebody to SNAP it up! :)

Hi Christine! OH, I love that little table! You did a terrific job on it too! I have one very similar but mine doesn't have two shelves below the top - just one! Oh, I can see you poking all kinds of pretties on it.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Christine I have a table like this and love it. You have done a great job repainting. I love the aged look and need to try buffing some of my projects with the minwax afterwards. It gives it a neat look!

Love the lines of that table! Looks great!


Oh did a great job, you had it in you! Sorry, though, I think it'll sell in a blink!

Sherry said...

That is fantastic! I would love to find a little table like that. Around here they would have $40 on it. So disappointing not to ever find a good deal.

First that was a steal of a price! And it turned out so beautifully! I have no doubt that it'll sell quickly Christine. *winks* Vanna

Your table is beautiful, Christine...I have something similar but not with the bottom shelves. You did a great job, I am sure it's going to sell!


Kim said...

I think it's gorgeous Christine. And even better you already had the paint! Great score for only $12.

It looks great, Christine. I love that table and what a deal! I wish I could find nice ones that cheap and sturdy. Thanks for sharing at WUW.
