Triangle Side Table Makeover

Triangle Side Table Makeover

I picked up this little triangle shaped side table at a garage sale over the summer. I liked the little folding sides. When they are extended the table top makes a circle.




It was in pretty sad shape with cup rings all over the top, but for only $3 I couldn't resist!


Unfortunately one of the folding sides was loose and wouldn't stay in the upright position. I thought I could fix it but it just wouldn't stay up no matter what I did! So, I just took them off!


After sanding it all down I gave it a couple of coats of "cake batter" white.


I added the polka dots on the top to try and disguise a couple of areas where the wood was raised up a little bit due to past moisture damage. You probably can't see it at all in the pictures.


I distressed it a little bit around the edges.




It will be heading down to my space at Uptown Antiques this weekend.




I think it turned out pretty cute even without the folding sides! Sometimes I think things turn out for the best when what you weren't planning on happens!

I love it! The dots are adorable on it! You can use the sides you removed to make signs---or I can, in case you need to be reminded to not dispose of them!

You did a great job on the little corner table and the dots on top just make the transformation complete. I would love for you to hop over to the Vintage Charm Party (http://www.bluewillowhouse.com/2016/03/17/vintage-charm-22/)and share your post.

I prefer it without the sides...too cute! It will fit in small spaces too. Love the paint job and that cake batter white color is so pretty. Have a great rest of the weekend.
