Goodwill End Tables

What a project! When you see something and think it would look great painted white, it seems so easy. I picked up these two, very worn end tables and new a coat of creamy white paint and some scuffed up edges would really bring them back to life. 

Here is what they looked like before:

And after:

The process:

- Gently sand with a sanding block
- 1 heavy coat of Zinsser Cover Stain Oil Based Primer
- 1 coat of creamy white paint
- Sand the edges down as much or as little as you would like to give it a distressed look
- Glaze (optional, I didn't not glaze these)
- 1 coat of water based poly protective top coat

Sounds easy, right? I suppose it was, just took a little longer than expected. I hope to have my sprayer up and working soon which really would've helped with this project. Oh well, they are done:)

The DIY Show Off


  1. So cute! I love how paint and some elbow grease can transform items :)

  2. Truly amazing what a little (or a lot!) of elbow grease, talent (of course) and some paint can accomplish! These are beauties!

  3. Did you use oil based paint or latex paint?

  4. I used oil based primer with latex paint. The protective coat is very necessary as latex paint is a little softer. Allow ample drying time!



I always love to hear from you:)
