Spray Painting an Accent Table

This accent table was found on the side of the road, left for trash pick up.  I was on a morning walk with my side kick and was afraid to leave it and come back with my jeep to get it later, so I carried it home.  Dog leash and poop bag in one hand, accent table and leg in the other.  

Spray Painting an Accent Table

The broken leg was a simple fix, the nut and screw pieces just need glued back on the inside of the leg.  So I used my favorite wood glue by Gorilla Glue !

Here is what she looked like before the spray paint.  I did not like the little drawer on the middle shelf so I removed it.  

spray painting tip for spindles

My favorite tip to give anyone painting spindles is to use on old 2 x 4 and drill holes, so the spindle can screw directly into the wood.  This allows you to paint and spray all the sides without making a huge mess.  

adding color with scrapbook paper

The accent table needed some color, so I added scrapbook paper to the tops by using mod podge.

You could also use wallpaper to avoid having to match up lines, since a single sheet of 12 by 12 paper  was not large enough.

This table turned out to have a clean and classic look.  I am hoping she will find a good home soon.
