I have been looking for one of these tables for a while, i love the bone structure and double shelves. I found this one at the Goodwill back home for $15. I saw it and passed it by, but when i got back to Chatty i couldn't stop thinking about it. So my sweet mother picked it up for me. I used Stain and paint that i already had so this project only cost me as much as the table.
Here is the before and after pic.
I painted it with the light blue (Mountain Air-Sherwin Williams) leftover from out kitchen ceiling and laundry room.
After it dried i painted it with the dark turqouise from our kitchen. I wasn't being to picky with my painting cause i wanted a little of the light blue to show through and i knew i was going to sand it down.
Then i took the electric sander to it and sanded the whole thing down.
Finally i stained it (with some stain the hubs had leftover from a job) and wiped it off.
This is what it looked like when i wiped the stain off.
and the after...
I love how it turned out. I have never tried finishing a piece off with stain but it deepens the color and makes it look so much richer!
