It wasn't until a few months later that I found a liquidation store that sells used furniture. Recently, it's been described as a place where hotel furniture goes to die, but the furniture has potential, options are endless, and the prices don't hurt either. These were a little rough looking, but I liked them - not to mention they were the perfect size.
It only took me 18 months to finally realize they needed a little updating. I went to Home Depot, picked out my paint, and by the end of the week, I could barely look at them anymore.
I first removed the knobs and lightly sprayed them with Rustoleum Metallic Satin Nickel...
And after removing the doors, drawer and lightly sanding down the tables, I painted them with a green base coat, using a dry brush technique around the details to accentuate them.
I topped with a coat of Behr Paris Grey.
I rubbed a dark brown tinted faux glaze around the accents to give it an antique look.
Not all furniture is meant to die in a liquidation warehouse!
