Small Side Table Makeover

A small side table gets a super easy & cute makeover!

This is my first furniture project of the year.  It's weird, but it's difficult for me to work on furniture without James being here.  Refurbishing furniture was our thing--James would repair the absolute trash furniture I brought home & then I painted everything.  

There's still a rocking horse in the basement that James repaired before things got crazy.  I know I need to paint it, but I can't bring myself to start on it.

I randomly found a small side/end table at Goodwill last week & decided to bring it home.  It just needed to be painted, so it was a relatively easy project.  I'm sure if James were here, he would have made some repairs.  It's a little wobbly & James was all about perfection when it came to anything like that.  He would have had it as good as new in no time.  Now I just have to be comfortable with the imperfections.

I dug out my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint color, Sacred Sage & got started.  The finish was a little shiny, so I sanded it down just a little bit with my sanding sponge.  I got lazy & didn't sand the entire thing, but the paint went on beautifully.  I love Fusion Mineral Paint so much.  It's very forgiving.  My favorite part is that it has a built-in topcoat.  I've had some major topcoat disasters with bleed through & I've never had it with Fusion so far.

I then distressed the table while the paint was still a little wet.  Because of its topcoat, Fusion Mineral Paint is difficult to distress when it's fully dry.  To distress, I once again used my sanding sponges.

I don't have the longest attention span, so I love when projects go fairly quickly & smoothly.  This one did not disappoint.  I'm also by no means a professional furniture refinisher.  That's the main reason why I distress everything--it hides both mine & the furniture's imperfections!

This was a neat little project to get me back into the furniture refinishing world.  It isn't quite the same without James, but I'm slowly finding my own way.
