Welcome to Themed Furniture Makeover Day! Still one of my favorite days of the month.
This month the theme is Animal.
Hmm…I thought…that’s a hard one.
Then I got an idea. So here’s what I started with. A thrift store side table that set me back $9.99.
This is after the engineer gave it a good sanding to remove the shiny finish.
I gave her two coats of Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture paint in Oyster. Another sanding and a coat of wax followed.
Then came the “animal” part. I had a pretty piece of bird print fabric that I thought would be an amazing accent to the drawer front.
I measured the space, and cut the fabric to fit. I added a coat of DecoArt decoupage medium for fabric to the drawer and smoothed the birdie in place.
Next I added another coat of the decoupage medium on top.
The hardware was an aged brass color originally, but I changed that up with a little vintage copper spray paint.
What do you think? I think she’s pretty cute decoupage side table, if I do say so myself. ;)
If you love it, put a pin in it! :)
