Rustic End Table in Bliss {guest post}

Come see the creative table top Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations created to go with her Southwestern table makeover in Bliss!

This topless Mersman end table sat at the side of the road. Missing a drawer as well, it was a perfect victim for a makeover.

First, the panels needed to be removed so I could cut them down to match the side that was missing a drawer.

After disassembling the entire table, I was able to cut the panels all the same height and design.

Then put the table back together with glue and screws.

I cut and screwed in a piece of scrap bead-board paneling to replace the top.

Then sanded the entire table to prepare for painting. Painting upside down and from the inside out, in one coat of the pretty turquoise blue shade, "Bliss" by Country Chic Paint, it covered beautifully. I used the dry brush technique on the top frame for a rustic look.

I decided to recycle belts from my crafting stash to cover the bead board. After choosing the right belts and a pattern, I cut and glued them onto the board.

Then I used Country Chic Paint dark antiquing wax, brushed onto all of the painted surfaces, including the dry brushed frame. It brought out all of the lines and details of the wood work.

Now, the table has the rustic southwestern makeover I was after.

And it goes with the southwestern chair I previously refinished.

The recycled belts gives it a unique look.
