painted and glazed side table

If you want to catch a glimpse and see what's inside my handbag,
head on over to A Glimpse Inside today.
I'm dumping my purse out and giving you an inside look!

A few weeks ago,
while I was doing a quick pop in to my local Deseret thrift shop,
I found these signs
and this table.

I wasn't in the market for a side table,
but when I pulled open the drawer I saw this.


Drexel Heritage has a history as well made, high quality furniture and for $15 I thought I would try taking my skills from my drab to fab furniture painting class and see if I could make something awesome at home.
In just a few hours, I transformed this side table from old Grandma, to hip and modern but still traditional.
I was quite pleased with the results.


I painted the whole thing with free paint from my favorite side of the road supplier.
Seriously, the paint is awesome top of the line brands, usually full containers.
I keep my eye open when I see a pallet of paint because there is usually at least a few gallons I can use.

Here are the legs
{the best part of this piece I think}
fully painted with two coats of my free paint.


I used my paint class technique and tried dark wax.
I really like how the dark wax pooled in all of the right spots.



I kept the original hardware and love how this piece turned out.


I'm thinking that since this piece didn't turn out half bad,
that I may keep my eyes peeled for more pieces.

What do you think?
Have you embraced the painted furniture trend?

What brand of wax are you using and does it give it smooth feel.

I actually used Annie Sloan dark wax and minwax clear wax. And yes, it does have a nice smooth feel.
