It's no secret we are all about the details around here! Unfortunately, classic details can cost a pretty penny! If you're anything like me, you are looking to transform your existing pieces from super drab to oh so fab in a budget friendly way!
Here’s the story: When I moved into the house I started with minimal furniture. I created a list of essentials which included a table, because family meals are everything to me! I ended up finding this table at our local Good Will, leave a comment below if you want to know how much it was [it will blow your mind!]! Anyways, I got this gorgeous hard wood dining table home and it was perfect for our space! It fits 4 comfortably without the leaf and 8 with! As I started renovating the dining room, removing wall paper, taking out carpet, updating the built-ins, painting the walls, it was apparent that the table needed an upgrade too!
- I set up shop in the garage with a great room temperature environment [ideal for paint to dry], laying a tarp on the ground.
- I started by opening the table and sanding the entire thing down with super fine sand paper [you can do this by hand or with a hand held sander].
- After that, I dusted it off and used Valspar Premium Finish paint and primer – white spray paint.
- I sprayed the table and let it sit overnight. I continued with about 4 coats of paint, until it had my desired coverage!
Volia – it was that simple! A complete transformation!
If you're not into DIY I have rounded up some white tables I love:
