Hi friends! I have a FUN project to share with you today, on Thrifty Thursday – a raggedy Goowill side table updated with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! Now this project has been done for a while, I don’t know why it took me so long to share it with you! But now as a functional piece in our home, I just adore it. I’m so glad I didn’t pass it by…
Would you have? I don’t remember the exact price, but I think it was around $7. And I was looking for a small entryway table for my handbag and such and this seemed like the perfect fit.
So I took it home and added two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor’s Silk to the table. There were also some pegs missing, but I found easy replacements at Hobby Lobby that fit right in. A coat of paint on those and you couldn’t tell the difference.
I’m really in love with this color.
Now once dry, I started to work on the table with the Annie Sloan Dark Wax. We have quite a few burgundy accent pieces in our home, and when picking out the paint color I noted that the Emperor’s Silk with the Dark Wax took on more of a burnt red hue that I thought would be perfect for our home.
And here’s how the little guy turned out. What do you think?
I also added a fun wire basket to the center so I can store things there as well.
And now you can see where my handbag lives! I’m so happy I have a place to put it, and we have a key holder to match that sits right above. Now this is right next to our garage door so when I’m ready, I can grab my things and go!
Convenient, and I think pretty! What do you think? What kind of thrifty treasures have you found lately? Any good upcycles? Be sure to share them with us in the comments below!
