Before/After Side Table Project

Hi everyone!  I'm still waiting for Blogger to replace my Thursday post.  In it I gave a preview for what I'm planning to do this week.  Instead of rewriting the whole post I'll just say this...This week is House Tour week here at Stairstep Boys.  I'm going to give you an inside look at our home.

To start off I wanted to share a project I just finished this weekend and I'm super excited about.  
Here's my yard sale find I bought a couple weeks ago for $2.

I sanded her down and initially thought I'd do a stain

 I decided to go with paint.  This is a pale mint color.  This is after 2 coats of paint with a light sanding in between and more sanding in places after the final coat to give a lightly distressed/weathered look.

I decided to use the table in our bedroom.  The final steps included a subtle stain wiped over the whole table to give an antiqued look and a coat of polyeurothane.

A closer look

Next up in furniture projects is this beauty I found for free!


  1. Wow! Nice work! It turned out beautiful! I can't wait to see what you do with the chair :)

  2. Oh wow, that night table looks fantastic! I love it. I am looking for some pieces too, been checking Craigslist, per your suggestion. That chair is lovely, can't wait to see how it turns out.

  3. Great job...but I have to say, I want the chair!!! Can't wait to see what you I should go to the garage and return to sanding down my rocker.

  4. Love the finished product...$2 oh yeah!
    I love the white!
    And the free chair is awesome.
