It’s offically garage sale season. It is time for great bargains and a little TLC to collide. I got this buffet table for $15. It actually was in great condition just the way it was. But I had grander plans for it. I took off the wings and casters and headed off to Menards (that’s for you Casey) and bought some American Accents Canyon Black Spray Paint.
After a few coats of that, a top coat and a little sanding to give it some age I have myself a sofa table for my living room.
One thing I learned: The top was laminate. I did sand the whole thing before I painted it. But I guess with laminate you have to get all the shine off in order for the paint to stick. So the paint on the top of the table isn’t smooth like the rest, some spots look shinier than others. But since there is stuff on the top to distract I wasn’t too worried and didn’t have the desire to sand it all down and start again. Lesson learned though.
