Outdated 70's Hexagon Table REDO


For some reason this post is seeing a ton of new traffic lately.
I figured I would repost it to make it easier to find.
Even though it was small and simple it
is still a favorite makeover of mine!
Enjoy!

Good morning my Beauties! I have been working like crazy and I kinda
feel like a squirrel trying to get all his nuts in order before winter.:)

I have been cracking through some pieces of furniture in order to
MAYBE let hubby park in the Garage this winter; .....I said MAYBE!!! :)
one of the pieces I worked on was this Dated 70's end table...it was very RETRO
to say the least.

So I grabbed my CeCe Caldwells Michigan Pine and slapped it on and
after dried I waxed and distressed it.

I can't believe the difference a coat of paint makes.

I love how it upDATED this worn out piece.




Even better..it SOLD the day after I put it in my booth!
WOOO HOOO!!
Love it when that happens!
I hope you enjoyed this little update.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Nice work! Love that Michigan pine. I always pass on tables like this because I always think they are just TOO dated...shows what I know! Lol. I love it!

Boy that colors name is spot on.Reminds me of the Pondarosa Pines I grew up with....I like and can see why it sold...a great simple color to team with wood tones...

Great remake. I have had my eye on the very same type of table. I sort of like the wood, but thought about black. Thank you so much for sharing!

Peggy Bolyer said...

I used to have an end table similar to this one. I love what you did to it especially the color.

Helen said...

I ALWAYS overlook tables like this..especially the ones with glass tops. You have changed my mind on tables like this. Yours is so gorgeous and I looovve the color!

Lesa said...

QUESTION: I HAVE CONSIDERED DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS, B U T, MY 2 TABLES HAVE A BRASSY SMALL TRIM AROUND INSIDE @ TABLE WHERE THE PIECE OF GLASS FITS. HOW WOULD YOU SUGGEST I ADDRESS THAT? OVER THE DATED BRASS....THANK YOU AND YOUR TABLE IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING.

This looks great! I have been searching for this very table and have let a few get away. I love what you did, but I am almost torn to keep the wood tone. Thank you so much for sharing.
