Two-Toned Table Makeover

2 Hours

I found a little old table at a garage sale and gave it a quick and easy makeover! Check out how I gave this table a fresh new look!
We'll start with the "after". Here is the little table all finished! I'm really loving the two-toned look and the bright pop of blue.
This is how the table looked when I brought it home. I loved the legs and the little drawer. It was pretty beat up with peeling paint.
To remove the black paint from the table top and drawer, I used a combination of sand paper and paint stripper. I sanded first, then used the paint stripper {which took a couple of applications}.
I removed the drawer and covered the table top with newspaper and painter's tape. Next, I spray painted the legs and bottom of the table with Rust Oleum's "Aqua" spray paint.
I used Minwax's stain in "Driftwood" on the table top and drawer.
I just love the finished product! So cheerful and bright!
