I have been so excited for the transformation of this end table! I loved it before. It had a creamy yellow distressed finish, chunky spindle legs (LOVE) and a glass top (didn’t love so much). Despite what I liked about it, I was ready for a change and to better coordinate it with the other furniture pieces in the living room (most of which were also getting a fresh coat of paint).
My furniture-painting-guru friend, Jess from Blue Hydrangea Furniture looked at it one day and said, “You should replace the glass with a wood top!”. Uhhhh…DUH! Why didn’t I ever think of that?! (Story of my life.)
So I enlisted the help of…you’ll never guess. Yes. My husband. He found some thin wood in the garage that wasn’t great but would serve our purpose. I had an idea of what I wanted to do but wasn’t 100% sure, but I started with staining the wood dark walnut.
