One of the favorite corners of my house involves one of the most unique tables. People always ask where it came from and how much it cost. Little do they know that it was a $10 find at the local thrift shop.
If you love thrifting as much as I do, you know that once in a while you come across a great piece of furniture that is in not so great of shape. I encountered this a few weeks back. Found a beautiful Brown Saltman, mid-century corner table! It had lots of scratches and bumps everywhere, not to mention the many water stains, but i couldn't see my life without it. It seemed impossible to restore it to its natural wood color, so I decided to give it a pop of color and have it match our decor. Make a 1950's piece a little more modern.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
An old, beat up piece of furniture that you can't live without.
Small power sander (if you're a trooper, go at it by hand)
Primer (i recommend KILZ if you are using spray primer or ZINSSER if you want to use a brush or roller)
Spray Paint in your favorite color (make sure you decide if you want a gloss or matte finish)
Sealer (I like KILZ complete)
An old rag or if possible a hand held vacuum
A big, open space and lots of patience!
