Vintage Side Tables

When I spotted this pair of vintage side tables (at the right price), I knew they would find a loving home soon after an RPK Relove.  

 I had already started the prep when the light bulb went off "Don't forget to take a Before Pic!"  Tada!

A little stripping and sanding of the top revealed another beautiful wood grain just screaming to be stained.

I used General Finished Java Gel Stain, with several coats of their High Performance Satin Poly.

A little light distressing....

Love the rungs....such pretty details with these older pieces...

And one small surprise as I put on the finishing touches...What slight difference do you see in these two pieces?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Is the difference in the drawer pulls? hmmm...How does that happen?

  2. These are soooo sweet! I love them. Did you use GF antique white or chalk paint?

  3. Love the makeover! I had a table identical to these two but it was missing the drawer. I painted and sold it.

  4. they're glorious now!

    hope you'll stop by for lovely, the unexpected, and smiles.
