Before and After side table!



I was looking for a small side table to go in a guest bedroom, something with a little character. I found the perfect piece in this little table.

Before

After



I found it at a local second hand furniture store and fell in love with it! I loved the shape and the wonderful detail that it had. When I asked for assistance to get it down from the shelf, the gentleman told me that the veneer was almost completely peeled off the top and that I may not want it once I saw it. I told him that was no concern for me since I was going to paint it anyway. He sold it to me for $20.00, thinking it was a lost cause. I was thrilled, it was sturdy and would make the perfect side table for our guest bedroom. I took it home, scraped away what was left of the veneer on the top and sanded the top nice and smooth. I painted it and then took the sander to it to distress a bit. I am so pleased with how it turned out! Looks like a million bucks:)
