Tired of your dark brown side table? I know I was. It certainly did not go with the light and bright concept I had for the living room. All you need to change things up is $20 and about 3 hours. Your actual prepping and painting time probably only adds up to 30 minutes. It’s the drying time for two coats of paint that takes longer. Here’s the before:
It’s a great classic shape, but just didn’t go with the new look. To start the project, I wiped off the table, but paper under the legs, and opened up a small can of Country Chic Paint’s Lazy Linen. It’s a clay based paint that is perfect for DIY projects. I love the flat finish and easy coverage. (No affiliate links or promos this time around, I just genuinely love using the stuff.)
After one coat it looked like this. I realized after I took the picture that I missed a spot.
Two coats later and a quick switch of the knob and I was done! After I took this picture, I realized that I missed yet another spot. Gah!
I got this unique knob from Free Spirit Market in Humboldt SK for just under $7. They also sell the Country Chic Paint in project sized jars for just under $10.
I may put the tough coat on the top at some point, but for now I’m enjoying my lovely “new” side table.
