Continuing on with my little home renovations, I decided to give this old side table a facelift.
We've had this little table for YEARS and to be honest, I've never really liked it.
I bought it raw from a pine furniture place back when Brandt was a baby (19 years ago!) I had had the grand idea of staining it myself, trying desperately to copy the lovely colonial style, golden stained Freedom Furniture version I had wanted to buy but we couldn't afford at the time.
And I was pretty bad at staining furniture. It looked uneven and terrible and never looked "right"...it always bugged me but over the years we still used it and it was practical, if not pleasing to the eye!
But a lick of antique white glossy paint, some sanding/distressing and some varnish and it now looks so much better and sits in our front loungeroom.
Now to muster up the courage to paint our coffee table!!!
