Over the past couple of years, I’ve collected furniture that I plan on refinishing and sell. Or sometimes keep ;). I have quite a few chairs and side tables in stock. Recently, I had finished a few chairs and dressers. Both are time consuming jobs. I needed a break and moved on to some easy projects, the many side tables. In a couple of weeks, I finished two matching tables, a small side table, a Moroccan style table, and an oval console table. All purchased for less than $100! Love that.
My friend gave me these two matching side tables. They were great tables! Except they needed a little wood filler where a dog decided to have a snack. You can see the bottom shelf had a few spots to fill. The shape of the tables were great, clean and simple. I loved using Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash on my coffee table and wanted to use the colour again. The tables were perfect for Ash. Here’s the before…
During the summer I scored a few items from a guy on Kijiji. One was this bench. I also picked up this small table. It was cute and only needed a little bit of work. It was scratched up and missing pieces of veneer. A coat of paint would make it new again. I filled the gaps with wood filler and painted the table in Paris Grey ASCP. A couple coats of Varathane satin finish and she was done!
I picked up this table a long time ago…and delayed working on it for some reason. I had a plan. Paint it teal, distress it and it’d be cute! Finally I got my paint brush going and painted it in Renfrew Blue Fusion Mineral paint. There were so many nooks and crannies in this table. I think that’s why I was slow to work on it! Tedious to paint but the details are my favorite parts of the table. I distressed the edges to accentuate their shape. I love how this one turned out. Here’s the before, cute but the features weren’t highlighted.
And the after….
I saved my favourite redo for last…
I bought this console table this summer. I loved the legs and shape of the table. It is much bigger than it appears. It was a struggle to get it in my Toyota Corolla. Luckily the lovely lady who sold it to me, was patient and helped me get it in my car.
Sidenote: I cannot wait for the day I have a hatchback car. I dream of all the furniture I can stuff into it. Desks, large chairs and dressers, oh my!
Ahem, back to the table. I sanded the top down, stained it Dark Walnut and painted the base French Linen ASCP. I love this colour. A beautiful neutral, warm grey. It looks great with the dark top. Here’s the before and after!!
Isn’t that colour gorgeous!? I love how the wood top turned out. I had my doubts when looking at the old finish. But the grain of the wood is beautiful. Can’t wait to do this colour combo again, it’s one of my favourites.
I have a couple more tables on the go…and then I’ll be working on another dresser. I’m loving the roll I’m on for getting furniture done! Hopefully the painting bug continues as I have lots in stock!
Thanks for stopping in!
