Console Table Spray Paint Makeover

I scored this great little console table at an auction for $5 sometime last year.  It was the perfect size and I loved its lines but was in need of some loving especially on the top.  It has sat in my garage since then awaiting its makeover.



Centsational Girl's console table was my inspiration to finally refinish it.

My first step was to sand it and then I sprayed it with Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze .  I love this color and knew it would provide me with a bright base upon which to apply my favorite wax finish.

Indoor/Outdoor Paint

Below is the table after two coats of Blue Ocean Breeze.  I also lined the petite center drawer with scrapbook paper as shown below.



I then took out my trusty, 'go to' Howard Citrus Shield Premium Paste Wax in Golden Oak and applied it generously in a circular motion over the entire piece.


After 10 minutes, I began buffing and buffing some more, leaving just enough to achieve the distressed look I was hoping for.  The faux crystal knobs were finds from Michaels dollar bins...score!!!




It is now the perfect bedside table in my daughter's room and I'm loving it against the lavendar striped walls.  

Project #2 Complete!!!

Let me know what you think....

  2. Well I am just going to refer to you as Larissa...and I love spray paint too. I know what chemo can do to one's hair...I was born with curly, had chemo and low and behold came back just as curly! What I really wanted was Marcia Brady's straight hair!

  38. Wow, I cannot believe how drastically can of paint changed the look of that table. It looked so old lady-ish in the before, and now it's young and fresh again! I'd be thrilled if you'd come and link this fabulousness up to the Head to Head Showdown, going on right now at www.icantstopcrafting.blogspot.com ~Jen

  46. I love it! I'm too impatient for spray paint...I always overspray and get runs. You've inspired me to try it one more time. I'm now following you!

  47. I sent Helen an email on spray paint and thought I should share the tip I sent along to her. I use a spray paint handle/gripper (whatever you want to call it). For $5, it gives you a broader, more even spray and minimizes the drip. Heather

  48. Wow that wax worked wonderfully for getting that aged patina. So glad you shared this on Motivated Monday at BeColorful. It is beautiful
