I'd like to share a furniture transformation. This spunky colored side table was a great find because it featured a magazine rack down below.
This cute little piece had a very heavy coat of glossy black paint. I spent many hours sanding it down to wood. I was willing to put some time in, since it only cost me $3.
With it well sanded, I went straight to painting. Very rarely do I prime my furniture. Especially since I do sanding after for the distressed look.
It looks plain from the side, but it has a fun little paint job down below.
I used a paper homemade stencil for those chevrons. They took this little table from drab to fab!
I did a light coat of paint and sanded the edges. As you can see this old table had some nail holes showing & even a minor crack. But I managed to sell this little darlin' at an occasional sale for $40.
