I loved the first collaboration with Charleston Crafted, when we turned an old, non-functional sewing machine table into a hidden bar table, and we were ready to take on something else!
We were shopping and came across an old wooden coffee table that had peeling paneling and lots of water stains, but had cool Greek keys on the sides that are really in style right now. The table was small, so we thought we could design it so it would look great in a little girl’s room!
We started by peeling off the paneling that was falling off the Greek keys and fixing up the legs. One of the legs was missing pieces at the bottom, so we had to take the pieces off the other three legs to make them match.
After sanding and priming the whole thing, we decided to paint the four sets of Greek keys with metallic gold spray paint to give it a royal shine.
After they were painted, we reversed what was covered with painter’s tape and painted the rest of the table in a blush color we had laying around from another project. The blush and gold combo made us think that this would fly right off the store floor at Palmetto Goodwill. After all the paint was dry, we covered the entire piece with a couple coats of sealant to give it a smooth shine.
This was a quick overview of what we did, but if you want to find out the full details of how to do these parts of the project and see some of the stuff we didn’t talk about, check out the full post on the Charleston Crafted blog.
