"Here is the before"
It was time and weather worn, peeling and just dirty.
"What a sweet little bed table this would make"
So I bought some spray paint. Not any spray paint but the good stuff. This one had a built in primer and it said
"No sanding needed"
That's my kind of spray paint!
I learned from the label under the table it was hand painted in India. I'm sure when new this was quite nice. I chose to leave the information on for future knowledge.Once the cleaning began I also learned this table is not made of perfect wood. From what I could tell it was particle board of sorts and it really felt like heavy duty card board. The original paint on top was wearing away and sanding was out of the question. I took my chances and sprayed it anyway. It's still a bit lumpy but the paint went on so well it's really not bad for what I want to do with it.
Once I added a little vintage table cloth it looks great!
Perfect shape and size to use on the bed for my laptop.
Or for a cup of tea in the evenings, with a snack.
I added a little vase with flowers from my garden.
Yes, here in Florida the flowers are blooming on this beautiful spring weekend.
What is it they say, "From trash to treasure"
This little table is perfect and is indeed a treasure to me.
