Spray paint side table makeover

It’s amazing what a difference some spray paint makes! I picked up this pretty cane table for $20 at a secondhand store. It’s in great shape and I knew it would be simple to freshen up.

After brushing off the cob webs I applied two good coats of lovely shiny white paint, allowing drying time in between. It was a little tricky to get in all the nooks and crannies but the end result speaks for itself. It looks like new!
Here it is at Winterfell in one of the bedrooms. Oh, and here’s a sneak peek at another room that is VERY close to being finished.

    Charming, as always! Love the rolled up towels! The last time we vacationed at a resort, housekeeping made swans and elephants with the towels… maybe you need to brush up on your animal-making skills!! LOL…

      Now that’s funny! I actually said to my husband at the time that it was a shame Rose, our daughter wasn’t with us on our last visit to Winterfell, because she loves origami and probably could have folded those towels into cranes.

      Remember the towels folded like baskets at Florida?

    You seem to be having such a lovely time with it all!

      I am having a lovely time….it’s a lot of work too, but hard work is easy when you love what you’re doing. I’m on the home stretch now. 🙂

    That looks great! I am addicted to spray paint– well, to ALL paint, really. Every single thing I see in thrift stores, by the side of the road, even in people’s homes, I think, “That’d look AWESOME with a few coats of paint!” 😉

      Thanks! I’m new to spray paint, but I can see how an addiction might form. I love the results!

    This is really cool and it turned out wonderful. I hadn’t realised you spray painted that 🙂
