This pretty end table from the early 80s is one of the items I saved from my parents’ home. It sat in their living room for years, and is in dozens of our old family photos, both from when I still lived at home, and when my own children were babies. Recently, I gave this end table a makeover with milk paint and stain, so it can remain in use for many more generations.
This table has so many beautiful features–the curvy legs, the scalloped corners, and especially the intricate parquet pattern on the top. The table was very solid, and in great condition. The outdated golden oak stain was really the only thing that needed an update. With a little elbow grease, some milk paint, and some stain, this table got a modern farmhouse makeover.
