After I had just finished reupholstering the two wingback chairs in my family room my mom found a two-tiered pedestal table on Craigslist for $10.
She brought it to my house in hopes that I would refinish it for her. I told her I would and placed it between the two chairs just to get it out of the way. And then lo and behold I fell in love. I had to have the table.
This smaller table was there before and I was planning on changing out the fabric but now with the new chairs it just wasn’t making the cut when this beauty was sitting there begging for a place in my home.
For weeks I begged, pleaded and bargained with my mom in an attempt to get her to give it to me… to no avail. I even offered to clean her whole house and she still said no. Eventually my wonderful step dad intervened and talked her into giving it to me…thanks Mark…youdabest!
My only option was to strip and sand it down so it was all smooth. I felt like I was wasting time doing all that when I was going to paint it anyway. However, your finish is only as good as the surface underneath. So I spent way too much time sanding and stripping off the old finish. But I got the surface all even and ready for some primer. I actually cheated on my favorite black paint (Rustoleum’s Canyon Black) and opted to try Behr’s Suede Black in Satin and I must say I LOVES! I was won over by the beautiful, rich, one coat, lush black.
I have not accessorized it yet. That will come another day and another dollar but I do love how this table works in this space. I also need a few other pillows to complete the look.
Speaking of pillows…the Definition of Nest pillow is available in my Etsy shop. Three options available for your spending pleasure 😉
