weekend project: a vintage end table makeover...

Vintage End Table Makeover / Oh Joy!

Happy Friday! We've been on a bit of a flea market hunt lately and scoring great finds left and right. We wanted to show you a super easy way to update an old side table that may not be in great condition but still has a great shape. We've shown you how to transform an entryway mat, denim jacket, and backpack with splatter paint, and now we're showing you how to use it to make a vintage end table good as new. Here's what it looked like before...

Vintage End Table Makeover / Oh Joy!

You'll need...
- vintage table
- white spray paint & primer
- house wall paint (we used Misty Teal, St. Patrick, and Springtime Peach)
- disposable cups

Here's how...
1. Spray table with white spray paint and let dry for 1 hour.
2. Using any left over house paint you may have lying around, pour some into a plastic cup and add a little water to thin out the paint a bit. You will want to do this a little at a time so that the paint doesn't become too thin.
3. Dip your brush in the paint and use a flicking motion to splatter.
4. Let dry for 2 hours (especially if you have larger blobs of paint that may take longer).

Ta-dah! It's a fun splash of color for the living room, office, even a kid's room!
