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!
