Garage Sale Find Turned Chic Accent Table


Like most thrifters I enjoy going to garage sales and envisioning how I might be able to change the appearance of a piece I find. When I saw this little table I knew it still had a bright {metallic} future ahead of it!
I loved the character of this table. It even reminded me of something Tory Burch. Definitely a must have I needed to snatch up.
I spray painted the top of the table white, and decided to switch things up a bit and use a water-based metallic paint on the rest of the table.
It was very easy, and really transformed the look of this simple table!
I love this chic table so much that I'm currently on the search for another one just like it. Fingers crossed ;)

      Rust-Oleum makes water-based metallic paint. It's sold in Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Lowes, and many other places. 😇 I see the question is months old. @TheresaRohrer, how did the elevator doors turn out?

    I loved it in black, but you really transformed into an even more beautiful table. Did you try asking the home owners to see if they might have another one or where they found it?
