Table transformed

I was generously given a coffee table by my dear friend K. She was reconfiguring her living room and I happily took it off her hands. I forgot to take a picture of it before I took off the hardware and started sanding it, but it was pretty close to this one.

Here she is after some sanding:
As you can see the center drawer is pretty wide and there are drawers on both sides, which I loved for all the storage possibilities.

I gave her a new coat of paint in Valspar’s Meadowlands. One of the knobs was missing so I got a cheap ORB set from Tarjay (it was 14.99 in the store):
But it didn’t look right.

So I spray painted them Heirloom White:
But still, I wanted something more vibrant because I knew what I wanted this table for.

So in came my friend Bauhaus Gold et voila!
It was exactly what I wanted. I added some number stickers in black, to pop off the golden yellow knobs.

My oldest approved:

And immediately started to set up a Godzilla monsters battle on top:

My plan, however, was to make this a homework/craft table for the boys – the storage is great for all their workbooks, paints, stencils, crayons, markers, etc.

And the height is also perfect for them – the table is bright and cheerful, and a great addition to my kids’ playroom.
I am very happy with the finished result – it is my first time re-doing a piece of furniture and now I have plans for my youngest’s dresser. You know how it is, the first step is the hardest and now I am off, running in search of furniture to paint.

Hope you enjoyed my super-secret project!
