I wanted to add a really unique piece of furniture to our guest bedroom to display decorations. When I started looking around at what “unique” costs, I had to come up with a new plan. I found a side table at Ikea that was the perfect size and cost. The only problem was that the table only came in an oak color which did not match the color scheme I wanted. So, I decided to buy it anyways and paint it. First, I primed the table with white primer. Then, I painted two coats of my end teal color. I could have stopped there, but I wanted to give the table a worn look. With fine sandpaper, I sanded the edges and corners of the table to make it look vintage and worn. I added my decorations and absolutely love the way it turned out.
