{side table makeover}

{Before}


Remember this ugly thrift store side table?? The front had fingernail polish on it and one of the sides was covered in red paint..  I guess I saw the potential in it and loved the style of the table, so for $3-5 {i can't remember what I paid for it} why not!!!
{After}
Isn't she beautyful!!! It's crazy what a good coat of primer, cream paint, and glaze can do... I didn't even refinish the handles.. They were in pretty good shape and the color of them against the cream looked good so I left them the way they were. 

So total cost of this project:
table $5
primer $3
paint $5
glaze- i already had a ton that I use for my shelves
and it took only a fraction to cover this table

$13 isn't to shabby

That turned out great. I can't wait to makeover the little gem I have. I think I will do the glaze for sure like you did.

Isn't it amazing what paint can do? You turned a very ugly duckling into a swan. Fabulous job!
