Pretty End Table Gets Saved from the Landfill

When Design It Girl, Nicole, came across this marble topped end table, it was about to be tossed.  “A company that was selling vintage pieces (in not so great shape) was relocating their store, and they had so many pieces, they didn’t want to bother moving.”  Nicole salvaged this table and several other pieces.

While this table was showing some age with a dated finish, it was still sturdy with good bones.  She repainted it using a pale blue from Valspar’s line of spray paints.  A little bit of java glaze applied after the paint brought out some of the carved details on this piece.  Nicole restored the original hardware from this piece, and reattached it once she’d finished painting.  With the marble top and golden drawer pulls, doesn’t this piece have a new air of elegance?
