You ready for the price? Keep in mind it was 50% off the listed price:
You are seeing right! The marked price was $9.99, so this little table with beautiful legs was $5! That is why I love thrift store shopping. You never know what you will find. It’s definitely hit or miss. Some days I go and leave empty handed, but days like this makes it worth it. All this baby needed was a little love. Let’s see the after:
Now let me show you how easy it was to update this Thrift Store Table!
How To Easily Update A Thrift Store Table With Milk Paint
While I was browsing Hobby Lobby I saw these Folk Art Paints on clearance and they had a gorgeous aqua blue color called Winter Harbour, so I scooped them up for this table.
Whenever I buy a thrift store piece I always give it a good cleaning first. Next, I gave the entire piece one coat of the bonding primer and sealer. I followed the directions and let it dry for an hour prior to adding the milk paint.
The second I added the first stroke of paint I knew I would love this color! It is just a soft, calming shade of aqua. It looks white in the pictures, but in person you can see the pretty color.
Again I gave it one coat, let it dry and then gave it a second coat. I really think the bonding primer made a difference, as the milk paint adhered perfectly! I gave it a little sanding around the edges and a couple of coats of Daddy Van’s Beeswax, which gave it a great shine!
With the table costing $5 and the paint $4, this beautiful thrift store table makeover was under $10! I am so happy with the finished piece and I hope you are inspired to makeover your own thrift store table!
