Today is November’s Themed Furniture Makeover Day and this month’s theme is red. Red is one of my favorite colors and I was excited to makeover a table that I found in a pile of trash on my way to school one day.
I was already running late the day I spotted this table but it didn’t stop me from doing a U-turn on Rivermont Avenue to rescue it. The teens waiting for the bus beside the trash pile gave me a very strange look as I loaded it into my car.
Lucky for me, the table was in great shape, it simply needed a good cleaning and a thorough sanding. After I cleaned and sanded it, it received three coats of Behr Ultra semi-gloss in forbidden red from The Home Depot.
You will notice that the color of the table looks a bit different in all of my pictures. Since it is a shiny paint, I had trouble photographing it to show its true color. It’s more of a burgundy color rather than a cherry red like it looks in some of my photographs.
This little table’s first job is going to be on my porch for Christmas. Won’t it look pretty with a Christmas arrangement of greens on it’s top? I also plan to display some of my vintage Christmas books on its shelf.
I’m so glad that I saved this table from the landfill!
This is the eighth month that I’ve participated in Themed Furniture Makeover Day. You can see my other projects here or you can click the picture below.
