Octagonal End Table Restyle

Octagonal End Table Restyle

This little gem was found at a yard sale this past weekend. It was quite a score as they were practically giving it away. Why was it such a score? Well, it was barely standing on its own. It had missing screws and screws that very loose. It also had a few chips on the underside of the tabletop that needed to be filled. Lastly, it was filthy and in need of a thorough sanding.

I was tickled once I had it completely repaired and prepped for painting. I could actually see the ugly duckling turning into a swan.

I chose black paint for the base and tan for the tabletop. I love it so much I might be using that paint color combination a lot more.

As always it still needed a little more something-something. I cut a fleur-de-lis stencil using my Cricut…

…and stenciled it using black paint in the center of the tabletop.

A light sanding on top of the table and a rougher sanding on the legs created the finishing touches to this restyle.

  1. Love transformation you rendered on this table. What an incredible difference, table looks fantastic. We could use table like that to eat on when company comes. No room for table in mudroom or kitchen. Color combination you used makes your table look sharp, fleur-de-li looks great on top. Will you sell it? You have more resistance than I do, would want to live with good creations for while before I sold them but can’t make money that way.
    Happy week
