DIY: $20 Chalk-Painted End Tables

DIY: $20 Chalk-Painted End Tables

14 comments
After the magic that happened with the dresser that I chalk painted, it boosted my confidence to paint more recycled furniture. There's something so fun about taking something that's a little outdated and making it into something completely your own. 

I'm almost finished with the "closet room" aka the bedroom I've turned into a walk-in closet. I've also finished decorating the home-office. So my next project is the guest bedroom and guest bath. To start on the guest bedroom, I found these dated end tables on a Facebook yard sale site for $10 each. Since I already had the paint, this project was only $20 for two new side tables for the guest bedroom. 



These are the two end tables that were $10 each. I saw potential in them because of the design in the front that I knew would be beautiful if painted white. The tables weren't real wood, they are the fake stuff so I didn't really care about painting them. 


I loved the original hardware, the design in the drawers, and there were two of them in really good shape for a fantastic price! 


I used the Rustoleum's Chalk Paint again in the Linen White and then applied two coats of the protective top coat. It's really SO easy to use. 



After painting the drawers, I knew these side tables were going to be gorgeous in white. 


This is the final product! Just like I had imagined, two beautiful side tables for the guest bedroom! 


Not only did I get each table for $10, I found two matching lamps for $10 each as well. That brings the end tables and both lamps for the guest bedroom for a total of $40! 


Here's a preview of the guest bedroom. The bedding is a little dated, there's currently no headboard, and I really want to update the size of the mattress. All in due time and all within a budget of ... well not much. 

After months and months of home updates, Casper helped me by creating this fun graphic that anyone can use in making any space their own 'home.' 


I'm using this new home essential guide to helping me create the guest bedroom. Next on the list? Some new pillows, a larger mattress, and window treatments!

  10. These turned out absolutely gorgeous! I have a couple of antique pieces that I hate in my house, but they might benefit from a few coats of white paint.
