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.

SHARP as a tack. Perfection.
Nice! It is so good to see furniture get a new look and live a new life.
The table looks great and all it needed was that pop of white! Love the pieces you used too in staging the photo!
Love the white & wood combination! Turned out great! Visting from #welcomehomewednesdays
Your table turned out beautifully! I love the pop of white. Thanks for sharing your makeover with us at Merry Monday this week!
beautiful job Kathy! I love 2 toned furniture paint colors.
Thanks for linking up to talk of the town!

Wow Kathy, I can't believe how just a bit of white paint completely transformed this piece! Love the way you styled it for the photos too!
Beautiful! I love the combination of paint and wood.
That is one gorgeous, good-lookin' table! I love the contrast between the polished wood and the white drawers. It is one of my faves you've shared. You get a "10" for effort and a "10+" for beauty!
I thought your table was the inspiration piece! Simple project, great look.
A note on the styling: that brown box was too bulky and especially too brown. The photo would have looked more interesting with a touch of virtually any color: a pop of red, or orange, or blue...

You found the perfect piece for this theme and I love it staged with your own junky, rusty goodness touches!

This is a great look for this table! Love how the white freshened the whole thing right up! XO
Thanks for sharing all your great ideas!
Looks great! I was curious about the Reclaim paint and checked it out. I think the Reclaim Buttercream paint is just what I have been looking for to redo my small kitchen table. Double thank yous fur this post!

Gorgeous! Love the two-tone look.
Love this Kathy!!
Such a pretty table! You made it look brand new!
Love the new look and even more with the items you staged it with Kathy! Your piece is perfect for this look too. I have that Howards product too, I should pull it out if it will make my furniture look as good as yours!

I totally love your two-toned table. It's the perfect intersection of mid-century and farmhouse. And your rusty staging teasures give it that great Petticoat Junktion charm. Another fab makeover!!! Susie from The Chelsea Project
