Stained and Painted Table

I think there is no better before and after picture than a furniture refab. 

IMG_0347 I was looking for a small end table to go next to my newly reupholstered couch.  I drove past this yard sale three times before I stopped and offered the guy $10 for this solid wood end table.IMG_0301The legs were too tall for my little loveseat so I took them off and chopped them in half with a chop saw.IMG_0302IMG_0326 I stripped the top of the table.  I normally use the brand Bix or Jasco but Home Depot only had Kleen Stripper.  I must say I was equally impressed with this product.  Here is the before shot of the top.IMG_0328 Here it is after it was stripped and sanded but before it was stained. (The drawer next to it had not been sanded).IMG_0331 The I sanded the whole piece with 100 grit sandpaper to roughen it up and prepare the surface for primer.  I wiped it clean.IMG_0332 Then I covered the top with newspaper and tape…IMG_0333Then I primered and sprayed the bottom (with my air spray gun) with Antique White by Dutch Boy’s Refresh Line.IMG_0309

Then I stained and poly’ed the top.  After it was all done I scuffed up the edges to tie in the wood tones of the top. It still looked way too plain for me.  So I sprayed a bright silver pull with oil-rubbed bronze and then buffed it with Spanish Copper Rub N’ Buff.IMG_0349 Then of course I had to add fabric inside the drawer (click for tutorial here)IMG_0348

I put the piece in place. LOVES!  Now I just need a little lamp to lighten up the space and some accessories to tie it all together.  Oh and a pillow one the couch.  No worries I am on it!IMG_0347IMG_0344 This space is sprucing up nicely.  My husband has already laid claim to this space to work from home when he needs to.IMG_0346

    This little table is adorable! I never would have thought to spray the hardware AND Rub N' Buff it. Clever. It's the little things.

    Can I ask if you water down your paint for the spray gun? I was going to use our Kobalt spray gun to spray a corner hutch for our dining room, but I couldn't get it to spray cause the paint was too thick. Other ladies say they don't water their paint down, but I don't understand how that's possible. Help?

    I just LOVE the table. I love the style especially, and the paint with stained top turned out so well. I think that corner looks especially inviting! Thanks for sharing, as usual, and inspiring me to try new things in my own home.

  11. Are you sure you'll let him sit on the couch?

  12. Annie Wilcox Designs says:

    Don't let him stake a claim to that space, my hubby always takes my special places in the house. It should be a compliment I guess, that they love what we do.

  13. That is really cute. Nice job. Jen-SheEndeavors

    Holy cow – I've been looking for something like this to use as nightstands for a looooooooong time now. It's a perfect match for the dresser I refinished. I love how you did the two tone, it looks amazing!

  23. I just have a quick question…did you use oil rubbed bronze spray paint on the drawer pull? I would like to paint the pulls on my kitchen cabinets that color! Thank you!
