I found this lovely round dining table a few weeks ago at Goodwill. It was my lucky day because someone was just returning it because it was too big for their space! Score! I knew it could be something of a beauty with a little TLC...
Here is my BEFORE:
(I've been so forgetful with taking before pictures lately but I caught myself right as I was starting to prime it and snapped a pic!)
And here she is AFTER:
I primed it with oil based Zinsser (two coats on the table top to be safe), painted it white in eggshell finish, and then gave it some distressing and applied a water based poly for extra protection.
Then I had to hunt down a similar one online and show you how a little paint and a Goodwill find can save you hundreds of dollars!
Pottery Barn $699
So, since I already have a kitchen table I put this one for sale in my booth at TTGG and it will hopefully go to home with someone who likes Pottery Barn style on a thrifters budget ;)
PS. Did anyone watch the first episode of Design Star? What do you think? I thought it was okay but didn't notice any stand out personalities! Can't wait for the white box challenge!
