End table Makeover

Living room makeover project #4 End table

I found this piece at the same time I found my awesome sewing chair.  I have wanted a end table for a while and I loved this one because it has two little drawers in it, perfect for storing my magazines and other books.  I recently bought a new rug for my living room and I loved the leaf patterns all throughout the rug so I thought I would incorporate the leaves into my end table.  I again used clear contact paper to get the look I wanted.  Who knew contact paper was so cool.

The End Table

First thing I did was sand it down and paint the top of it white the color I wanted the leaf to be.

021Then I found a leaf in the carpet that I wanted to copy.  If you look real close you can see the contact paper over the leaf.  I copied it with black Sharpie.

Then I cut it out and placed it on the top of the end table.

Then I painted over it with dark chocolate brown.

Then I rubbed stain all over the end table so that the white wasn’t so bright.
