“Rusty” table spraypaint makeover

I bought this little end table one day from The Foundary. I sure do buy a LOT from that place, huh!? I can’t help myself, Willard.

They have good deals.

When the table arrived I loved the shape of the base but I hated the finish. The finish was supposed to look like rust? I think? But it was man-made rust, so it just looked kind of gross and diseased instead.

Plus I’ve never seen pink colored rust. Yick.

So… I tackled this table with my trusty Rust-O-leum oil rubbed bronze spray paint. (I love the trigger on this stuff, btw. My fingers thank Rust-O-leum.)

Check out the new finish on this little side table!

Now I love the shape AND the color. It fits perfectly beside my favorite chair in my living room.

Thank goodness for spray paint.

    The power of spraypaint … overwhelms me. Literally (looks at legs, feet, hands, arms, chest, sunglasses, shoes….) *grin*

    You are so brave to paint a new item! It does look great. The last time I saw pink in something old was the forgotten-about- leftover-lasagne in the back of the refrigerator…it was gross too.

  8. Thank you so much for making our linking party rock this week…

  1. […] I am for this hour-glass shape pedestal table, right?  (If not, let me present to you Exhibit A; Exhibit B)  Little in the middle but she’s got much back.  I LOVE THIS […]
