Table Makeover

I’ve been sharing a ton of pics of my little red table this season & thought I’d give you all the details on it!

I picked it up at a yard sale over the summer &, like pretty much all thrifted things I buy, it ended up in my basement!  After I bought my command center,  I wanted a cute little table to put below it.  I knew my little table in the basement would be perfect, so I dug it out & brought it upstairs!

Here’s what the table looked like before.  Cute, but really dark & in bad shape!  I wanted to give it a pop of color to brighten it up a bit!  Also, I just really like painting things!

I had some red paint that I turned into a homemade chalk paint using this recipe to paint it with.  I usually tend to stick with flat paint, but I took a chance on this high gloss & it turned out great!  After painting & drying, I sealed it with polyurethane.  When it was all done, I thought it was super cute!  I wasn’t completely sure of the red color when I was painting, but I absolutely love it!

Oh!  I was totally planning on distressing it too but I forgot!  I still think it looks awesome!

I really didn’t expect to be using it so much this season but here we are!  It’s just the perfect little table to photograph things on!

I love how it fits almost perfectly in the small space!  As I’ve said before, our house is super weird on wall space, so finding something that fits without looking bulky is quite the task!  I’m glad this one worked out!

As you can tell, I’m all about reusing & recycling old things into something new & refreshing!  This little table has been quite the star this season & I can’t wait to see what other seasons bring for it!
