Console Makeover

4 Materials
1 Day

This is the perfect console table, perfect for an entryway or behind your sofa, use as a tv table, desk ect... it just needs some TLC. My vision for this table was a coastal, beachy vibe!

  • It’s definitely a good strong piece, solid wood from broyhill.

I love that it has a functional drawer.

Once I cleaned it up with Krud kutter, a great cleaning solution from Home Depot it was ready for sanding!

I used a palm sander with the roughest sand paper to remove the old stain, then used a fine sand paper to smooth it out!

Now it’s ready for a fresh coat of paint.

I used a fresh winter blue for the body, then mixed equal parts water and white paint to make a whitewash for the top.

once the paint had dried, I used lemon wax from The Chippy Barn paint company to seal the whole piece! I then used a nice paper to line the drawer.

I love how the top turned out!

I changed the knob to a large glass knob, giving it a nice new coastal look!

Here is the finished piece!

Not bad for a few hours work! A new look for any space! Happy Thanksgiving 🦃🍁
