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 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:

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!

Super cute! I can't believe that was a $3 thrift store find. You really scored big on that one!

Love this! The color is awesome. It went from a table I would probably pass up to one I would love to have! #HomeMattersParty
