Newest Re-do

My new favorite thing to do is to find furniture and accessories that need a make-over and give 'em one. Lets get something straight here though-I'm really not very good at it yet. If it wasn't for the makeover blogs I follow I would have never even thought about redoing some of the things I have.So don't expect to find any master pieces here just a few cute new additions to my home.

That being said here's my newest redo

I needed a new workbench for my studio and this table was just the size I was looking for. Loved that it had the rattan drawers. I got it at a yard sale for $5.00
Don't you love the my little pony drop cloth.

After 3 coats of black gloss spray paint it now looks like this

I had originally used a lacquer paint on it hoping would give it a slick shiny look.Big mistake. The wood sucked it up in certain places and left it dull while it left it super shiny in others. I was able to wipe alot of it off and start again with just a basic black.

I had some leftover aqua paint from another project and  sprayed the drawers that color.

The top already had wormholes and  dents which I just loved-adds character to an otherwise functional but bland table.

Total cost for project $11.00


  1. This is sooo my new hobby too! Love it! My husband has been prying the paint brush out of my hand, it's pathetic!

  2. It's so addicting!I'm going to have to go to spray-painters anonymous soon


Thanks for your comment!
