Bang a Drum…Table

I don’t know about y’all but with all this crazy weather I’m knocking projects out like there’s no tomorrow.

Like these little 1970’s drum tables that I found at the thrift store.

The tops were both scratched and once again someone had placed stickers on them.

Just stop with the stickers.

Please.

These tables were painted a shiny yellow color and both were pretty nasty.

But they were solid and built very well.

I scrubbed them clean and sanded the top with my orbital sander.

Then I gave them 3 coats of  Valspar’s Bistro White chalk paint.

You can also see that I removed one of the doors.

I didn’t need it for the plans I had.

I did leave the holes where the door went just in case I decided to add them back later.

I also removed the handles and painted them with Rustoleum  Oil Rubbed Bronze.

That’s a new favorite of mine.

After the paint had dried I distressed it a little.

I gave the tops several coats of satin Polyacrylic.

Once dry, I added my handles back on and went to making a cushiony place for my other baby to sleep.

All I did was take an old king size pillow, cut it in half and then hot glued the half’s back together.

I wrapped the pillow in an old pillow case and placed once inside each of the tables.

I love how they turned out.

I wish I could have gotten a picture of my chihuahua in them, but she’s still on the fence about them.

She’s spoiled and prefers to sit in my lap.

But that’s okay…

There’s plenty of lap to go around.
