Before and After - Side Table Makeover

I've been gathering up several pieces of furniture lately to sell in my space at the antique mall.

First I wanted to share this little table transformation.

Aztec side table makeover

Here is what it looked like when I bought it. I paid $5 for it.


I gave it a coat of coral colored paint called "Tulip Bulbs"! Very springy! Then I taped off a free-hand Aztec design.


I was inspired by this little {footstool redo} by Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe for the design.


This is how it turned out!


It's already in my space at the antique mall.



Here are some other pieces I have found that are in line for makeovers!

I'm working on this little writing desk now, it's coming along nicely. I found this on Craigslist and paid $35 for it.



I also found this little microwave cart on Craigslist and I paid $25 for it. I have some cute ideas for this rolling around in my head!


This little stool was at the thrift store. I paid $14.95 for it which is probably way too much but I just thought it was so adorable I couldn't leave it behind!


I found this mirror at a garage sale for only $1! It used to have pieces of wood over the mirror in a cross pattern like window panes. I think it would be cute to put those back on and create a chalkboard out of this. What do you think?


This radio is actually a reproduction of an older one, I found it at Goodwill for $4.99. I'm planning to remove the insides and make a night light out of it kind of like {this one} that Laurel over at Chipping with Charm did!

  3. Isn't it gratifying and encouraging to sell something in your booth, especially when you've put so much thought and effort into it? Hope you will do a post on that darling writing desk! Good luck with your Aztec table--it's a very pretty color.
