See how to give an old thrift store cane top table a makeover.
One of my favorite things to do on a day off is to hit the thrift stores and this cane top table was an unbelievable find!
You never know what you will find. My daughter always teases me because I say I’m looking for “a diamond in the rough”.
Well I definitely found a diamond the last time I went thrifting. I found this cane top table in great shape for $3!!
You read that right-$3. I pretty much ran to the register with it.
I am sharing this table makeover as part of a monthly Thrift Store Upcycle challenge!

I found the perfect shade of Aqua! It is so bright and cheery now and looks like a completely different table.
Here is what I used on this table makeover:
- Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint Everlasting
- Deco Art Maxx Gloss Acrylic Paint Aqua Waters
- Purdy Paint Brush, 2-1/2 inch
- ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape
This Purdy brush is AMAZING! You know how some paint brushes lose bristles in the paint? That did not happen with this brush at all. I also used it on the small edge of this table and the angled brush made it so easy.
I taped off the top of the table and gave it two coats of the white paint.
Then I used the beautiful aqua color to paint the legs and trim. I gave it two coats as well. I am loving this maxx gloss finish.
It is the perfect sheen! Can you imagine what this table would cost in a furniture store? Certainly not $3!
I hope you enjoyed this cane top table makeover. Thanks for visiting!
