Side Table Makeover ~ From Drab To Fab!

August 21, 2012

Last year I picked up this sweet little side table while shopping at my local Target.  It was on clearance for something ridiculous like $2.95, a deal I couldn’t pass up.  I even had the ideal spot in my house for it to go.  There was only one problem.  It was black and I wanted to put it in my living room, and black was not going to cut it.  The very qualities I liked about it (it’s size and shape) were being weighed down by the color.  The solution of course could only be found in a bit of dressing up.

I pondered the situation for a few weeks, trying to figure out exactly what look I wanted.  Finally, I decided to quit sticking my toe in the water and just dive right in.  First I picked up a cute little mirror from a craft store to glam up the top a bit.

Not quite right yet.

 

I have wanted to try Rub ‘n Buff for a while and this little guy seemed like the perfect candidate.  While I worked some magic on another project I can’t wait to show you (soon, I promise) my daughter took on the table.  A short 15 minutes later we had a winner.

Rub-N-Buff was so simple to use.  A little goes a long way.  All we did was rub it in with a soft cloth.  It dries really quickly and the more you rub it in, the more it shines.  I am now on the hunt to see what else I can transform.

 

What a difference, right?  I’m now in love with this little table.  It’s perfect tucked between my little chairs.  (I’m almost done with their little makeover as well.  I hope to show them off soon).  If you haven’t ever tried Rub-N-Buff, I would highly recommend it.  One more look, because I think it’s sweet! :)

Have a happy day! :)

Kristen,

Thanks so much for using AMACO’s Rub ‘n Buff. I can’t believe how much this changed the look of your table. I’d love to post this on our Facebook fan page (Rub ‘n Buff Metallic Finishes) and link back to your post.

Thanks again!
