Guest Blogger: Refinished Table by Vintage Revivals

We all remember Mandi of Vintage Revivals from Season 1, right? The champion! Well she's here today as our guest blogger for Round 1: Dollar/Thrift Store. Perfect choice right? This girl is always scoring great finds at the thrift store and turning them into masterpieces. She's got quite the talent for it and she's here today to share with us yet another one.

I’m Baaack! And when Tam asked if I would do a post for the Thrift Store theme I was all “Psssh YEA!”

Do you ever do nice things for other people? I am usually too busy, BUT when I was trying to decide what to do after my original project took a nosedive I thought of my cute Mother-In-Law.
See we scored this table at the DI for $10.00 that we have been DYING to paint but just haven't found time. Story of a DIYer's life right?

Table Before

The color that I used was Rustoleum in Blue Slate.

Table #1

Her style isn't quite as funky as mine but I did have to sneak a new idea in there somewhere so, instead of glazing with my Painting BFF (Ralph Lauren black silk glaze), I used a white glaze. I LOVE how it turned out. You can see my glazing technique here.

Table #2

It matches the d├ęcor in her basement perfectly. So go and try something new, it might turn out crappy or it might turn out SAWEEEET!
Love your guts guys!

Thanks Mandi! To see even more incredible transformations, be sure to go say "hi" to Mandi at Vintage Revivals.

  1. I love it, Mandi! Wowsas! That table is beautiful.

  2. Mandi, have you ever/is it possible to glaze white and then lightly glaze with black? This table is gorg!

  3. Beautiful! But just a thought...its not really repurposed if you're using the table as a table right?? Repurposed would be finding a NEW purpose for the table...right?? Sorry, it's that dang English degree of mine:) Regardless, I think that is a gorgeous blue!! Looks amazing! :)

  4. Love it!!! love the white glaze finish! You did a great job!! Check out my blog if you get a chance!!
