"Icing on the Cake" Hall Table Makeover

This post is a sponsored post or  uses affiliate links to help you find the products I trust and love

Hello, My Beauties!
I have a super fun, super glam and funky makeover for you guys today!
I am part of the Fab Furniture Flippin' Group and this months
Makeover was "Icing on the Cake"

Our sponsor for this months FLIP was
 D. Lawless Hardware!  It's a family owned and operated company that specializes in hardware, catches, casters, and even wood appliqu├ęs.  He has amazingly low prices as well as the wonderful customer service. They have some beautiful  hardware that can be the "Icing on the Cake".

 Here is the piece I started with.
I picked up this piece for $10 at a barn sale from another mom who had the Best intention of making it over, but just couldn't get around to it.
You can see that structurally it was sound..just outdated in the white and golden oak.
Plus the top was very beat up and her son had even etched his name in the top :)
 I started by sanding the top down a bit to get some of the deep grooves out.
I don't mind distressed but sometimes its nice to smooth things out a little.
I then painted the base in a General Finishes Gray milk paint.
You can see here, the first coat going on.

 I gave the base a couple coats of gray the top ONE coat and then decided to do some General Finishes Java Gel stain on the top to add dimension.
When all that was dry I painted another layer of silver paint on the top to give a bit more POP, FUNK, and GLITZ to the top. When that was dry I lightly distressed the top so you could see the multiple layers beneath it.
 Here is a close up of the finished top, with the hardware I chose to be the ICING on the CAKE for my piece. I chose the GREEN CUT GLASS KNOBS to accent my piece.
I have always loved the way vintage greens and grays play off each other and give such a fun and classic statement.
I hope you enjoyed this fun and funky makeover and I hope you will pop on over to see what all my bloggy friend have done with their pieces.
