Remember the little teaser we threw out for on of our upcoming projects?? Well the time is now. I found this end table whilst thrift shopping with my mom. (In fact, it was the same day she bought this little laundry hamper). And when I saw it… I knew immediately how I wanted to paint it.
This was a super easy furniture update, but I think it makes a dramatic difference. Instead of sitting next to your grandma’s davenport, it now has a fresh, modern look to it… and the clean white lines could go with just about any decor! (as long as you don’t mind a little pop of orange! I know I don’t).
After taking off the hardware, we sanded the whole thing with 220 grit, and then primed with Kilz, then took out those panels behind the lattice and primed/painted them using this bright orange! Before popping those inserts back in, we gave the whole unit a fresh goat of glossy white paint FOR THE WIN.
And then we don’t.
Because we’re saving for something far more important.
I know these pictures are TERRIBLE because this is an old post and I didn’t know better than to take pics at night. HAHA! But this is still one of my favorite furniture transformations to date! (even 5 years later!). Be sure to check out all the other furniture updates we’ve done over the years.
