Seeing Beyond the Ugly Paint Job to What Could Be

Over at The Salvaged Boutique, Karen explains that she was visiting a cousin when she discovered this table sitting on the curb a few houses down.  She was delighted to find that it was in great condition and made of solid wood.

The paint job on this table, though….{shudder}.  Despite the tacky florals, Karen’s husband fell in love with the little table as soon as he saw it, and he was the one to execute her vision when it came to the makeover.  He primed the table, painted a base coat, and then taped off stripes.  Once taped, the tabletop got a coat of glossy black, so that when the tape came off, the contrasting stripes took center stage.  What a cute, new look this table is sporting, now!

  1. WOW! I can’t believe this is the same table! Your husband did a fantastic job on the table. This makes me want to go “curb hunting”! I love what you do!
