Little Table Redo

I found this sweet antique table for just $10 last weekend. It had several scratches and the finish was peeling on all the edges.Just a little time with my porter cable palm sander, Rustoleum's semi-gloss black and Behr's Black- This is how she turned out...
I just love the detail of this piece. Here's a closer look...
And a view from the top...
I was able to dress her up in all my garage sale finds- Although accumulated over time, the total for all of these accessories was less than $10. I'd love to see what you're working on- send us a photo, we'd love to feature it. Love, Kelly

  16. Could you either post or email me about your paint-you listed 2 and I would like to know how yo uused each one. Thank you so much!

  17. Anna,
    I use the spray paint for the legs and carved areas, then I use a foam roller with Behr paint for the top- this gives nice even coverage. Hope that helps.
