Vintage End Table – Before and After

I’m so excited to share one of my latest projects.  I shared this end table in my thrift shopping post awhile back.  I couldn’t wait to get started on this piece.  When I brought it home it was a little dusty smelling and looked slightly sad, however the potential was there!  After some structural repairs, sanding and a few coats of paint this end table has been revived!  It can now stand proudly in your living room or family room and has spacious storage for magazines, kids toys or games, books or other fun items needing storage.

This project was fun yet frustrating all at the same time.  Although I am not a novice painter, this was my first time painting with chalk paint.  Before beginning I scoured all of my usual resources for advice and how-to help when dealing with this type of paint.  It took some trial and error to get used to the thickness of the paint as well as the type of brush that painted with the most ease.  Overall I am happy with the way this table transformed and although in the photo the color looks a bit whitish, in person it is a beautiful light grey.  I learned so much now that I have completed my first Annie Sloan painted piece and can’t wait to start a new one.  Interested in this end table?  Visit our shop for more details!
