DIY Side Table Makeover

These hand-me-down tables from my sister have taken a beating through the years but I figured they still had a lot of life left in them. I've been sprucing up my living room, and with it being a smaller space I knew these narrow tables would work well as end tables but after years of use they were in desperate need of an update.

Wanting to stick to a makeover budget, and being the lazy DIY-er that I am, I didn't want to spend more time or money than necessary. But I think my (lack of) efforts turned out well. Take a look and see what you think...

The screws that held the brackets that operated the drop leaves had been stripped so I decided to remove them altogether. Since these tables were going in the narrow spaces beside my couch and loveseat I knew I wouldn't be needing the drop leaves anyway.

I hate sanding furniture, so instead I washed down the tables with a big bowl of warm water with just a drop of dish soap. After they dried, I painted them with two coats of white primer I had on hand, allowing the primer to dry for about four hours between coats. This pic above is after the first coat.

I also had about half a can of semi-gloss white paint left over from another project so I used that for the final coat. I then let the tables dry for about two days before setting them into place.

I am so pleased with how the tables turned out. And since I spent minimal effort and zero dollars I won't mind if they get scuffed (which I'll just declare is a distressed look ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ), but so far they've held up very well.
