I got these two fabulous wood end tables from a friend for $10!
They were pretty dirty so first thing was first, a little wipe down!
After filling a couple small knicks and holes with wood putty; I decided to use a favorite milk paint of mine from General Finishes in Midnight Gray! No sanding required! This is after the first coat!
I ended up using 2 coats of paint and the finish was so soft and polished that I didn't even put on a poly coat or wax them they were smooth and fabulous! I replaced the boring wood knobs with a couple hand painted porcelain knobs I got on clearance for $1 a piece and they were finished! This project took only about 2 hours total!
Staging for after photos is one of my favorite parts!
These little beauties went down to the Antique shop on a Tuesday night and were sold by Friday for $60! I used paint I had on hand already from another project that paid for the paint plus more so this was an overall profit of about $35 after commission two the store, minimal supplies and initial investment! Not to shabby for two shabby chic little tables!
