Country Bedside Tables Get a Glamorous Makeover for My Master!

About: There is nothing I love more then making something new and usable again that someone else would have thrown out or torn down! And there's no reason to buy new when you can build it yourself!

I found a couple little bedside tables at a thrift store for only $25 a piece!

Step 1: Prepping for Paint and Using Rustoleum

First I got out my sander, you can see they were already in pretty bad shape (probably from 20 years of people setting wet glasses on them) but I still needed to hit them pretty hard to remove all of the glossy finish and give my paint something to adhere to.

I decided to use Rusoleum because I had it on hand. The thing about Rustoleum however is that it is not like normal paint and takes some getting used to. It is also ridiculously expensive and I would NOT have used it here had I not already had some. It is VERY thick, imagine painting with black glue that sticks to everything and you’ll have a good idea of what you’re getting into with this stuff.

First coat always looks like hell and then BOOM second coat and it is just gorgeous.

Step 2: Completion and Adding Baskets for Storage

I did two coats of black Rustoleum (going right over those fake black “hinges” they have on their sides) and now I just love them. The little baskets make for perfect storage for me!
