Ta-Da

So, here you have it...the after....



 ...the really turned out beautiful...I just love the feet on this table...


 I sprayed each table with Valspar, Perfect Finish, Gloss spray paint...the color is called, Cobalt Cannon


 Ohhh, shinny...

okay...don't look at the rest of the room...it's a mess...I'm spray painting the headboard white if it ever stops raining...

 ...the dressers really look like they go together now...right?


...just look at that high gloss shine...I did go over it with one coat of polyurethane...can you believe this is the same dresser that almost ended my project?  Where did all those holes go?  Can't even tell...


 ...the mirrors were also sprayed with Valspar, gloss paint in gold...


 ...that's a picture of my mom when she was Mini's age...wearing a top she made.

 I lined each drawer with scented drawer liners...smells so good.

 ...all the accessories used to style the tables were all purchased from the thrift store...
I almost sold this wooden tray...sigh.  I'm so glad I didn't...it's perfect on my new table...
Well, there you have it people...go out, buy a piece of old furniture and give it new life...If I can do it...you can do it...

Next up, my dresser...I feel like I'll find it this week...and when I do, what color should I paint it?

Enjoy your weekend and be safe.

      You are so kind...thank you...I love doing it...it's truly a passion...I see old stuff and I just want to save it...

      There was really nothing hard to painting them...it's just spray paint...you need a steady, light hand and a little patience...let me know if you give it a try...

  4. Yours appear to be in good condition...If you haven't see the cost of the Ethan Allen Dressers they are here--they are in the thousand of dollars:
