Makeover for a 2-tiered Side Table

I bought this vintage side table and it was screaming for a makeover.
I love that it has a bottom shelf- storage always makes me happy. I wish I had more of it in our little house.  I tried something new this time, white primer. Once I sanded down to the wood, it left a three color palette to enjoy. I'm happy with how it turned out, even though mid way through I thought I shouldn't have picked the color I did. But it turned out to be a great unexpected neutral piece with a big bang of character.

Updated: I now have a before shot. Thank you iphone pictures.





This table is listed for sale on my etsy store, Rocky Bella Studios.

  3. Kelsey,
    Have you ever been to RAD Thrift Store on Bernard Street? Their prices are very good. On Saturday everything is 30% off and anything under $1.00 is half off. All their glassware is 1/2 off on Wednesday from 4PM to 5PM. They have lots of furniture too.
    God Bless all you put your hands to...
