While out on a Goodwill hunting trip recently, I found these 2 end tables for only $9.99. For that price I was like, yup, y’all are coming home with me.
I knew right away what I planned to do with them. I’ve been on a Serena and Lily ‘dupe’ kick lately. I just love their furniture, but not the prices. So, once again I am bringing you a Serena and Lily look a like (or at least a sort of similar look 🙂 ).
|Water based Polycrylic|
|Gold Spray Paint|
Step 1 in my Goodwill End Tables Makeover…
First I cleaned it up really well. Then I took the edging off on the sides of the front. To me those seemed to be dating the tables. Next, I used some wood filler to fill in any nail holes and scratches, etc…
Step 2 – Paint…
Next, I painted them white. I used Furniture Paint from Home Depot, but any furniture or chalk paint would do.
I painted the drawer fronts a different color. I had some left over tan from a previous project so used that up. And lastly, I used some water based polycrylic to protect the finish,
Step 3 – New Handles…
I bought some new handles at Hobby Lobby. There weren’t many to choose from that were the correct size. However, I did find some inexpensive silver ones. I spray painted them gold since I thought that would be a better color for this piece. BONUS, they were 50% off, making them only around $8 for all 4 handles. I used some protective finish on these too, so they won’t chip.
That was it. This wasn’t to hard to accomplish. Here are the results.
Once again, I think they have a Serena & Lily vibe to them.
I did a VERY similar makeover to this bureau a few months ago.
