Do you all remember this N-A-S-T-Y table I found but did not buy at Diversity Thrift a while back? Well I was there the other day and the poor thing was tucked under an equally N-A-S-T-Y dining table just begging for me to take it home! So...I did!
I removed the hardware and buffed it up as best I could with Brasso. The I applied a coat of Zinsser Oil Based Primer and a White Lacquer spray paint. It's definitely not perfect, I'm beginning to realize that white paint might not be the very best color to use on very damaged furniture. It's kind of like white jeans...not the most flattering on the dents and dimples. But black, now that might be the best bet for beautifying beat up furniture and this mother of two's thighs!
What I'm not loving is the tinted glass top. It reminds me of the eye glasses people wear that turn into sunglasses when they are hit by the light. My husband rocked a pair of those until I informed him he was actually under the age of 30 and has no business sporting that kind of eyewear (this was a few years ago)!
Anyway...I hope to replace it with clear glass and trying to find the thriftiest place to get this. I was going to check out the ReStore and see if they had any scrap glass that would work. Anyone have any other ideas?
