Chic Little Table Redo

Sharing is caring!

Distressed side table by Girl in the Garage

I got this table for a steal this summer at a yard sale.  It had definitely seen better days and had a few minor issues, but nothing that some paint couldn’t fix!  This is what it looked like before I did anything to it:

I thought it had very nice legs.

First I casually painted it a pretty shade of blue like my mirror since I’m loving this color right now.  I didn’t worry about painting it perfectly because this was just the first layer.  Then I lightly sanded a few areas so some of the original wood could show through.

Then I casually painted over the blue with a pale Valspar Montpeliar Ashlar Gray.  Again I distressed a few areas until I was satisfied with the result.  And here it is:

I finished it just in time to display the lovely flowers I got for Valentine’s Day.  (After I wrapped the vase in eyelet ribbon.)  Painted table with flowers by Girl in the Garage

Looks like the perfect place to hang out and put together a jigsaw puzzle of the Mona Lisa, no?    =)

Stay chic, and have a lovely weekend!

    It looks so good! I also really love how you styled the puzzle on top. I think that’s such a cool, unique idea!

      Thanks Lindsay! I apologize if my site looked strange when you visited; I had to fix a few things while you were probably visiting. I appreciate your kind comment. 🙂

    I love the way you distressed it with the two colors. I’ve got an old bedside table that did belong to my Mama. It is painted yellow now, but I definitely want to change the color and distress it. Your using two colors has given me an idea that will solve my having to decide on one color!!!!!

      Sounds great Anita. I’m so glad I could help with your dilemma – I’m sure it will turn out lovely!
