Side table before & after

This week I enjoyed turning an ordinary side table into a super adorable piece. Here are the steps for the makeover.

  • First I cleaned it with a damp cloth. Here is a before picture.

  • Second, I had leftover paint from a previous project and decided to paint it Graphite (ASCP). Two coats and let dry. I took the drawer out and did not paint that part. I flipped the piece over to get better coverage on the legs. (Always a good idea to flip over and paint)
  • Next, I applied a coat of wax and lightly distressed edges with a sand block.
  • Then, I changed the knob on the drawer.

  • Finally, I waited overnight and buffed the piece with a clean cotton rag the next day.
