I love a good furniture makeover, my reigning favorite is the mint nightstand. I also love junk so I’m always on the hunt for the perfect trash to treasure piece. This is one of those trash to treasure pieces. The story of this end table is kind of like a fairy tale. Once upon a time there was this ugly, hideous end table at Salvation Army. My husband (the knight) rescued it for $14 and together, we brought it back to life… oh, and it lived happily ever after in my living room. The end.
Thrift Store End Table Makeover
We are such thrift store junkies. Anytime we are in the area of Salvation Army on half off day we have to stop in. And you know for every 4 or so bad trips you get one good one. Well we were about due for a good one a few weeks ago when my husband just popped in to the store really quickly. He had been there a few days before and saw this end table with a high price tag of $30. It must have been his lucky day because he was able to scoop up the same table for only $14 just a few days later! He brought it home as a surprise for me (that’s right folks, some women like flowers, maybe diamonds. Bring me furniture and you have my heart).
We busted out the Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and got working.
Enough this table was really bad when we got it – I love the brass hardware. Polished up it looks even better.
Then we distressed it a little bit to get the perfect shabby look. And then it really lived happily ever after. I’m so happy with the way it turned out. For $14? You can’t beat it! So there you have,
a thrift store story tale, I mean a thrift store end table makeover. The end.
