The Perfectly Imperfect Side Table

This month, I got to participate in The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest that was sponsored by one of my favorite paint companies Country Chic Paint. The theme for this contest is Bling Bling.

 We received one pint of their all-in-one decor paints, one pint of a metallic cream and a short handle paint brush.

I decided to try one of their limited 2016 colors in Sea Storm and Silver Bullet for the metallic cream.

I found this super cute little table at a local Goodwill recently and knew it would be the perfect piece. This table just called my name. It looked very handmade and whoever made it put a lot of time and effort into it and I wanted to give it new life!

This table was hand nailed together and I am still amazed at how they got the second bottom shelf to fit in there. So I brought her home and decided to paint her first. I am a huge Country Chic Paint fan. Here is a link to another blog post where I used their Vanilla Frosting color to redo my most favorite Cedar Hope Chest of all time. Their paint is incredible, it has great coverage and goes on well to any piece.

Here is the progress after one coat. I put one more coat on in addition to the first coat of the all in one decor paint in Sea Storm. Then the next step was to tape off the legs. I was envisioning a shabby chic/farmhouse silver dipped look for this cute little table.

This was my first time using their metallic cream. I was expecting it be more of a paint consistency, but Country Chic is very accurate in describing it as a cream. I applied two coats with a brush.

And here is the perfectly imperfect table all finished. I just love all the cute detail of it and seeing how much hard work someone put into building this table. The table fits perfect in my landing area of my stairs. Can't wait to find some new cute decorations for it in it's new home.

What do you all think?

  1. What a cute table, I would have grabbed that as well I love handmade woodshop stuff. You really updated this rustic find into a little glamour shot!

  2. I love side tables like this. It's perfect for any room and so lovely. I love how you painted this piece and the metallic cream on the bottom of the legs is such a great touch. Lovely
