You guys will love this sofa table makeover because I saved most of the original stained finish and used paint to bring the table into the twenty first century.
My makeover was inspired by a mid-century style nightstand I spotted on West Elm.
This was a super easy project adding just a bit of paint and cleaning up the original finish. Win-Win for both sides of the painted furniture issue!
I really like white paint and a pretty stained finish together….so fresh and clean.
My project table has almost a mid-century modern look with those straight lines.
This is the top of the table. I either had to paint the top or refinish it. No question about what I was going to do.
I used Reclaim paint in off-white. The photo above shows the table with one coat of paint. I applied two coats of paint.
There were just a few minor scratches and dings on the legs, shelf, and frame of the table. I took care of those easily with a furniture marker and Howard’s feed n’ wax.
I use the feed n wax a lot. You would be surprised at the way it revives a finish. No, it’s not stain but stain is a lot more work.
That white perked the table right up. Two tone finishes are attention grabbers! You can find more two tone paint makeovers here.
I know this table has a modern vibe but I had to use a few of my junky, rusty, treasures to stage the photo. That’s just me.
