Curvy and Petite Simple Entry Table Makeover

A good cleaning, fresh paint and gorgeous hardware make all the difference in this simple entry table makeover. 

Recently, I was given a curvy little entry table that had quite the colorful paint job.  Sometimes a furniture makeover requires a lot of work and sometimes it just needs a little cleaning and a fresh coat of paint.   This was one of those times when a good scrubbing and a little make-under made all the difference in bringing a piece of furniture back to life.

Let's take a look at how this colorful little entry table looked before.

It had quite the coat of dirt and grim and a very detailed and colorful paint job.  It's hard to tell, but there's even stripes and polka dots painted on the legs.  Someone spent a lot of time painting this piece and I'm sure it was perfect for a little girls room, but I was after a more versatile look.  Its petite size made it perfect for an entryway so the more neutral I could make it the better. 

I removed the current decal, wiped the table down with Simple Green then gave it a good sanding using my orbital sander and 120 grit sandpaper.  After cleaning off the sanding dust I added a new decorative decal (using wood glue) then gave the table 3 coats of General Finishes Snow White.  I lightly distressed around the edges then sealed the paint with General Finishes Satin Finishing Wax.

My favorite part of the table makeover are the gorgeous new knobs.  I bought them from Hobby Lobby a few months ago in hopes of using them on a future furniture makeover.  I knew they were perfect for this little table as soon as I put them on.
