I picked this up yesterday at a yard sale for $5.

I didn't do anything fancy to it, but I like it!

Very nice! I also JUST painted a table that looks just like the before, but I haven't posted it yet. :) I love the handle on your drawer.

Allison look at those legs, va-va-voom! Love the fresh grey paint, why does all furniture have to be brown? At least we know folks want to get rid of the brown and we'll take it for $5 and make it great. Lovely work.

Your table looks great! It seems that so many blogger/crafters are using gray paint now. I thought my daughter was crazy when she painted her bedroom walls gray...now that's it's growing on me...hmmm...what can I paint?

Chrissie said...

I should have known it was you again! Another great job I think I'll call you the "crankmaster" you can crank out projects like nobody.

a cute little table, I need something just like that for my family room

poindextr said...

love it! I got a little table like this from craigslist - the shape of that table is just so sweet. I'm sure it must look wonderful in your home :)

Did you use a sprayer? The paint job looks so terrific.

Brie said...

Very cute! And I think it is perfectly "fancy" enough. Sometimes if you do too much it looks bad! Just curious, how much spray paint did this take? I'm working on a similar table and it used up an entire can and I still have more to go! I was shocked!

I'm a new follower and would love it if you would get a chance to stop by my blog and see if it is something you would be interested in following as well! :)

What a small world.. I purchased this side table. :) It's currently serving as a night stand in my guest bedroom. I love it! Thank you!! I found your site through Style Minneapolis' facebook post.
