TRASH to TREASURE: side table

I drove by my coworkers house and saw this side table in her trash pile. I immediately called her like 3 times til she finally texted me back and she said I could have the table! YAY! SO here is the before:

 Yikes, the first order of business was to sand it and fix the front decoration trim where a piece had been broken. I just took the jigsaw and made the other side look the same.
 Cherry red gloss spray paint by Krylon, turned out a little to bright for me.
 So I glazed it with glaze and some green paint mixed. this is the first time i have ever glazed and it was FUN!
it helped bring it back to antique looking

see the pretty details.

Anyway I had a lot of fun with this project. I love mostly that it was practically free!!  Except the paint but I had most of it on hand!!


  1. You're so funny, Lexi - at least I found you again ;). This table looks great. I like that you glazed it with green, that's an unusual choice. (don't delete anything! lol!)
