These tables were pretty cheap. Made of particleboard covered by thin veneer, they were unwanted leftovers from a living room set that had been sold. You see handles but no drawers. Those warped lower shelves were tacked to the legs with tiny screws. I decided to simply do away with them.
(That isn’t entirely true. They have become great bases for painting other small items in my workshop!)
The first task was to sand all the veneer. Though thin, it didn’t peel and it handled the sanding without trouble. I was even able to round the edges slightly to take away the “scratchiness” of them.
A layer of primer went on, then it was on to the lime green. Such a fun colour!
I decided to add some darker green detailing on the legs to make these little beasts a bit snazzier. I also painted those fake drawer handles the same green after I sanded and spray-primed them. I’m pleased with how they ended up.
Two coats easily covered the little tables and the obligatory coats of Varathane made them glow! They’re ready as great little conversation pieces!
