So-I decided to redecorate our bedroom a bit and decided that we needed some new/matching end tables. I found these on Craigslist for only $10.00! When I got them, they had this awful cream color paint crackle finish with a visible layer of dark blue underneath. The legs were also painted the same dark blue color. I decided to sand them down and do a little repainting. The sea blue color is actually the same color as my retro cart.
All in all, I think all of elbow grease and many of hours of sanding and painting have payed off. I love our end tables and the clean, mid century touch that they will add to the room. There should be more before and afters to come in the near future!
