MCM Accent Table - Upcycle!
On a trip back home to see my family, I found these side tables in a small town, knowing that they could be restored to find their beauty!
Im trying to be more of a plant person! So I felt these were the perfect pieces to feature some plant babies 🌱
I wasn’t sure what lay beneath the original stain, I was hoping to return stain all of it, but under a few spots was particle board covered veneer, so the parts I ended up painting white we’re not able to be stained.
I used minwax provincial stain on the legs!
Tape off legs and prime
I taped off the legs once they were dry so when I went to prime the tops I didn’t get paint or primer on my stained legs!
After I primed I painted the tops! I used Canadian tire’s premier furniture paint X3 coats.
After the paint dried I removed the tape! And then top coated everything with varathane’s satin water-based top coat.
COMPLETED & Staged
These were a blast to stage! I absolutely love how they turned out!
These tables have endless possibilities of what they could be used for! But I do love them for plants ;)
Both of these items are from the dollarstore! Who says decor has to be pricey.
