It may seem like an odd time for a furniture makeover post, but this project was so quick that I was able to easily squeeze it into the holiday madness. Because when you’ve had enough of an old piece of furniture looking shabby and really want to it shine with the rest of your home, especially when you’re having friends and family over for the holidays, you’ll steal a few hours for a quick makeover!
This side table belonged to my husband’s great grandmother. So it’s definitely one of those pieces we want to keep in the family and would never giveaway. Unfortunately it had a rough life prior to coming to us.
There are some amazing details all over the table that, unfortunately, made it an unlikely candidate for sanding down and re-staining. It would take ages to sand all of these decorative embellishments and get into all of those thin grooves.
Satin Enamels, like the name implies, give a satin sheen to the finish of the paint. It also doesn’t require priming or sanding your surface prior to use. The Dark Denim is a nice darker blue that blends well with the rest of my living room which is gray, navy, and yellow.
Within a few hours I had 2 coats of paint on this little side table, allowed it a few more hours to be good and dry, and it was ready to be used! The only prep work I did was give the entire table a good wipe down with a slightly damp rag. There’s relatively no odor with this paint so I was able to lay out a drop cloth right in my living room and paint in the warmth rather than out in the wintry temps.
The detailed embellishments of the table all still pop with the paint. And now the table blends beautifully with the rest of the room! Not a bad project to squeeze into the holiday madness, right? Definitely worth setting aside a few hours to get it done!
