I found this cute little side table at the thrift shop a few days later and thought they would make a nice pair~
Although most of the table was wood, the top was laminate. That meant I couldn't stain the stop but would have to paint it. Since it had a slick top surface, I used this good stuff~
It says sanding isn't necessary, but I still gave the whole thing a nice sanding.
That's right... I woke my spray gun up from winter hibernation...it was actually warm enough to spray~ 58 degrees! I was giddy!!!
I used the same paint as was used for the base of the coffee table, Sherwin Williams "Creamy." After that I distressed it and then antiqued it by wiping on (and then alot off) Minwax Dark Walnut stain.
I wasn't too worried about getting the stain to look just perfect because I knew even more would wipe off when I applied the finishing wax the next day.
I buffed it to a nice shine using a cloth.
O.K... here's the before~
All fixed up...
Super cute paper from Hob Lob was the perfect lining for the drawers...
