$4 Table Makeover

100_8103

OK, this was a Goodwill score at $4…I bought it initially for my son’s new apartment.  He moved out a week ago and I thought since his new place was partially furnished that this would be a good addition.

It looks like it was a shop project…very sturdy, but the top is plywood and the edges had some gouges so I had to paint it.  I used wood filler and went over it several times with a sealer as there were some stains on the top.

I used a cocoa paint left over from another project and slathered on several coats to help cover any imperfections. I wasn’t happy with that so I painted the top white…

and I painted two stripes around the bottom using spray paint and tape.

It’s not perfect but neither was the table!

Anyway, I have decided to keep this table for my spare bedroom (aka my son’s room).  I will need a bedside table so decided to keep this table for that room.

I am glad to have it done and I do like the way it looks.

Looks wonderful! I wouldn't mind having that in my little nook to sit at.

It's really cute and I love the colors! I wish I would score a $4 table to copy your project! Julia
