Furniture Flip Friday

I was walking through the thrift shop a few weeks ago when I came across this end table for $5.95!  It was solid with no broken pieces.  The inside was in pristine shape.  I snatched it up! 

I let it sit in the garage for a few weeks while trying to decide on a color.  What color would sell quickly on Craig’s List?   That’s always a tough one.   I finally decided on light gray since I had some extra lying around.

I made some home-made chalk paint and lightly distressed the table after painting.  I stayed with the original hardware by spray painting the pulls in copper.  I also waxed the sides and front and sealed the top since I know this is the area that will get a lot of use and wear.

Here is the before picture:

And the after:

This piece sold within a few weeks on Craig’s List for $50.  Love it when they go quick!

Thanks for linking to our first Eat Make Grow Blog Hop! You make me want to buy a pick up truck and go looking for finds! We have an old bedroom set from grandma that could use a paint treatment like this.

We are already on to Blog Hop #2. I hope you'll come and link to that one as well. Feel free to link to any older posts if you think they are timely and pertinent.
