Hi, my sweet friends!!
I don’t know if you remember I paired up with 19 other talented ladies to bring you a monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge. Each month we will create a new home decor piece from an item(s) we’ve found at a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. There is no budget or specific theme so we are free to let our creativity run wild! Last month I shared this chalkboard makeover and this month couldn’t wait to show you one of my latest acquisitions!

I got this pretty side table some time ago, but I was busy finishing other things in the house so it waited outside patiently until her time arrived. The first thing I did when I bought it was taking a picture before loading it into the car… you know, most of the time I get so excited about painting it that then I forget.
It was in perfect condition but after being outside for so long the elements did they work and the veneer started to chip. I removed all I could and then sanded the whole top.
It was now ready to paint!
I chose a pretty blue from DecoArt, “Serene” it is the name. I really love that paint, it covers wonderfully with one layer as you can see below.
I decided to use a different color for the legs and chose “Primitive” also from the same brand. I used some extra scrap wood I had to not worry about painting the floor. You can see what I did with some other scrap wood I had here.
I applied some dark wax on the top and sanded the edges to give it a worn look.
To make the details on the legs pop I painted them in the same blue color.
And finally last weekend we moved and she is now in a special place. Love how it looks and that will be my corner to relax, read, blog, dream, and plan!!
I will be seating there to check out what the other ladies have done with their thrift store finds! Don’t forget to stop by their blogs to check out too!
