Painted End-table


The bedroom to people ratio in our home just went heavy on the people side leaving us wishing for one to two more extra rooms, or even just a den. As a result, our "office" shares space with the dining room. Not all the furniture matches, which is being remedied. I figure, if it can't be organized, at lease it can be color coordinated.

 fogging up this photo?


reality 

Some neighbors moved out, tossing a bunch of "trash" on the curb, including this end-table. Very functional, very plain.

my FAVORITE brown spray paint color
seriously, I wish I had more things to spray this on! lol

in hindsight: the pieces unscrew....could have avoided this 

The legs were painted Almond by Rustoleum. I love how the lighter color on the legs highlights the decorative curves.

love those legs!
Sealed with 2 coats of Polycrylic in a Clear Satin finish, my new favorite sealant. Unlike Polyurethane, the Polycrylic doesn't yellow.

80's style banisters
