Thank goodness we didn’t get any of snow from the big storm that has hit the Northeast… but I feel for those of you who have! Stay safe and keep warm!
These are a couple of little tables that I finished up a few days ago…
I remembered to take a before shot of this one… maybe because it was so hideous I didn’t think you would believe me! It looks like the top Formica but it really is just marbled contact paper, VERY classy!
I was able to peel the contact paper off rather easily, but the glue residue took me a while to remove… I used paint thinner and steel wool to remove the residue and let it dry before I painted it.
Look how cute it is in a fresh new coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Carolina Sunshine Yellow! I just love this yellow, it is so perky and bright! While I wouldn’t paint my walls this color an accent piece in this shade is just fabulous! On a side not check out my Daffodils coming up through the mulch… I’m so excited and ready for Spring!
This little table is very similar but I don’t have any “BEFORE” pictures. I did have to remove the veneer on the top and sand it down REALLY good, but structurally it was in good shape.
I wanted to use this one in my oldest daughter’s “new” room so I decided to paint it in Provence Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, this color is still one of my all time favorite colors!
Now she has a perfect little spot to drop her purse, put on her shoes or have a place for a friend to sit other than her bed…
You can usually find these kind of tables super cheap, I think I got both of these for $10. Most of the time the tables are in bad shape and/or wobbly, if so they are VERY easy to disassemble and fix so don’t pass them up as they can be perfect tables for a small space!
We are keeping the blue one, but the yellow one was sold before I could even get this post written!
Thanks for stopping by as always…
Until next time!
Oh pretty! I’m especially a fan of little yellow tables! I need to try that shade!
Thanks Sharon! The yellow is great, it takes more coats than I would have liked though… It was a very popular table for sale!
very cute I love this style of table 🙂 nice cheery colors. I have a table just like it but I was boring and used Annie Sloan Old White. Thanks for sharing!
Sometimes white is perfect for a piece! I just happen to love color on these little tables, I feel like every room can use a little pop! Thanks for checking them out Vicky!
SO cute.. Although I could never paint the one I have , my father made it in wood class in the early 1940’s ! 🙂
Oh I wouldn’t have painted it either if it was an heirloom! These were in BAD shape though!
Your tables turned out so nice. Great job. I love Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Thanks Jeannie! They were not quick projects because of the repairs, but had they been in good shape it would have been super quick!
