I'd Never Noticed Parlor Tables Before
It's a funny thing. You buy a white car and all of a sudden you notice every white car on the road. That's what has happened to me. I saw a really cool table at an estate auction a while ago and won the bid. After I refinished it, all of a sudden I saw parlor tables everywhere – antique stores, estate sales, online…
 
Today I introduce you to Hannah, named after the man who owned the store that made her – Hannah's Furniture in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She had a tag on her underside:

She was quite beat up with gouges on her table top.
We decided to pretty her up with Pure & Original Classico in Black Hills (a deep green) and add a bit of glitz with Champagne Metallic accents.

THE PROCESS

STEP #1 – Prep by cleaning, sanding and filling in holes, gouges and scratches.
STEP #2 – Prime. I sprayed Zinsser 123 tinted in gray with my HomeRight Finish Max.

STEP #3 – Paint with Pure & Original Classico in Black Hills (it's a very dark green). The coverage of this paint is amazing. Love, love, love this paint.
 
 
STEP #4 – Dry brush the details on the legs and apron with metallic paint.

STEP #5 – Stencil a Moroccan Tile design on the top with Rustoleum's Champagne metallic paint.

STEP #6 – Protect with (afflinks) Modern Masters Dead Flat varnish. I used a detailer's sponge to apply – so easy!

We found this table at a consignment shop that we like to visit every few months.
 
Find yourself some hot spots if you like to DIY and/or flip furniture.
  • Find your local estate sales companies and sign up to get notifications via email or FB whenever they have a sale.
  • Find a couple of good consignment shops that you can frequent. We have one that is about 30 minutes away and the other is in a touristy area a few hours away that we go to once a year and usually come home with half a dozen pieces.

 

It takes a little time, but soon you get a feel for the business of DIY. You learn as you go along. Read. Learn. Do.

Do you flip for furniture? I do! Here is my first parlor table – I called her "Sophia". I have another waiting in the wings to be revived.
