End Tables Redo

Back before our move, I bought two end tables from a local Habitat Restore for $45.  They are solid wood and we think "homemade", but they looked a little dated.

Yes that is snow on the ground!

We knocked out the slats and then sanded them down a bit.

They looked better already!

I didn't have a chance to do anything else with them before the move, so they sat in the garage waiting to be loaded on the moving truck.   

Then they sat in our new garage just waiting their transformation. 
And then one day...

I sprayed them with a gray primer!

and then put them back in the garage...
Now, they are finally painted and in the house!

I used Behr's Espresso Bean and then put a couple of coats of polyurethane 
on the top to help protect them.

It's so nice to finally have a place to put the lamps (other than the floor)!  
And my hubby was so happy to have a place to put his coffee cup (other than the floor)!

Now I just have to work on the coffee table I got at Goodwill for $10...

Living thru faith,




  1. Great job on those tables! I have some similar mission style that are just begging for some TLC.

  2. What a great job you did! It turned out awesome. :)

  3. This is such a tremendous transformation! Glad to meet another Kentucky girl!

  4. Love your tables! Great transformation.
