Side Table Makeover!

 

Side Table Re-Do by DIYinRealLife.com

We’ve all seen these tables…  The ones that scream 80’s?  The ones that look like they’re going to take more than a simple coat of paint?

This is a SUPER easy fix that is almost as quick and almost as cheap to do as a simple coat of paint!

 

Our friends had these tables and Handsome Man and I did a few projects at a their house over a weekend…. SO fun!!!

 

Check out the Before’s!

We had 2 side tables and a matching coffee table to start with…

We simply cut 2×6’s for the entire tops and screwed them in from underneath… Suuuuper Easy!

Also… You’ll notice it looks very warm and green outside?  Yeah…. We did this last summer… Just getting around to posting about it now!  It’s not nearly that warm out right now.  I’m pretty sure our month of April is bi-polar!!!

A coat of primer and 2 topcoats of white latex paint later, this is what they looked like.  Better, right???

After that, I distressed them a bit and then glazed them with my favorite glaze from Home Depot.

We also painted and glazed the shelves in the living room while we were at it…

Perhaps a little less 80’s now?

How’s THAT for an easy fix?

All it cost were the 2×6’s and some paint we had on hand anyway!  🙂
