a tale of two tables

I recently painted two small tables I've found. A coffee table I found at a flea market and a vintage Hitchcock table I found on Craigslist. I especially love how the end table came out!

Here it is when I got it... desperate for a paint job.

And here's the after. I took the varnish off the top and just used a coat of poly to protect it, giving it a more rustic look.
This is the second table. A super cute, and girlie Queen Anne style coffee table. Quite a score!

Here is the "after" painted antique white and distressed of course!


  1. Love the makeovers. I love that white paint makes anything lovely! I like that you left the top natural on the first one. Nice jobs!

  2. I love that you left the top natural on the little side table. It looks sooooo much better. Well done!

  3. I don't know how much you paid for the Hitchcock table, but around here (near the factory) they're going for a lot of money if in good shape.
