Today we are showcasing this wonderful end table. It was purchased at a Goodwill thrift store for $8.00 ! She is made of solid wood and in need of a little TLC.
The marks on the top were raised and the mystery gunk was dry and would not come off. We decided to lightly sand these spots so that the table top would be smooth again.
We were pleasantly surprised that this was a piece of Broyhill furniture 🙂
We decided to use our Homemade Chalk Paint Recipe and we gravitated to this bright shade of blue.
We each began painting a different side of the table, and we were finished in no time.
When the table was totally dry, we applied clear paste wax to the entire piece.
Then, we decided to distress the finish. We sanded the edges to allow the wood to show through.
Next, we applied dark wax to the entire table.
Here you can see the detailed finish that the dark wax provides as opposed to no dark wax…
We were going to leave the brass hardware in its current worn state. After we completed the painting we really liked the idea of shinier brass. We used Brasso to see how clean the knobs could be…
Here, we gently rubbed it on the knob…
We absolutely love the completed end table. After applying the chalk paint and wax treatment, the table looks like a beautiful antique piece.
We don’t usually paint with dark or bright colors…but we will now. We think our end table makeover turned out great!

This end table is such an inspiration piece – Makes us want to move some stuff around and redecorate! Have you painted any furniture lately? Send us a photo 🙂
Love the bold color choice, ladies, it’s really beautiful! I always forget about brass so thanks for the reminder 🙂 hugs for a happy day, Coco
Loving that bold blue with brass!! You have a good eye. I may have passed that piece up in its original state. I l-o-v-e the after!
Great transformation ladies and so many good tips! Love the blue ~ of course! ~ and this little table would bring wonderful color into a space. All the other tables at Goodwill will be shouting “pick me, pick me” next time you stop by so they can be the next cool transformation 🙂 Bwg ~~~
Vicki and Jen, I love this little end table and the beautiful bold blue you chose. I need to work on my painting skills for sure. That is gorgeous. and love the tips on using the wax. Love it, xo Lisa
This table looks beautiful and what a great price! I love how the hardware cleaned up! Just wonderful all the way around:)
Gorgeous paint color! The table looks like it was always meant to look just like that. And those knobs!!!!!
The table really turned out nice. Glad you decided to keep the knobs … once polished, they are beautiful. Before, the table looked like a heavy and chunky … not now !!! Great job.
