Ah the power of a few coats of paint! This little side table looks like it’s way past its prime but with a little elbow grease, sanding, and a fun new paint color, it is transformed!

The sunny yellow paint color transformed this table from a scarred old relic to a shiny new treasure!

Denese at Plum Life blogged about this table makeover. The table itself has been in Denese’s possession for some time, hence its well used appearance in the before photo. She wasn’t quite ready to give it up just yet so instead of retiring the old table she reinvented it! It took a little sanding to smooth out the old finish but then after a couple of coats of paint and coat of polyurethane for sheen and durability, the table looks brand new.
