 This is a simple up-cycled table.  I got this for free, seeing as it was my mothers, and decided it could be salvaged.

First thing is to get all the dirt and grime off. After that just a light sanding to make sure the paint you apply will stick.  If you have something with a high gloss you will need to sand more or get a deglosser.

Next wipe off all the sand dust and apply your color of choose.  I hand painted this one, but you could easily spray paint it.  If you do decide to hand paint, just know that it will take a few coats.

For the finishing touch I applied a chalk board decal.  I love the shape and it makes the table a little more whimsical!

Now go and find that piece that just screams to be up-cycled!!!
WOW! It has been a while since I have posted anything! Life as always can get away from us. I have a whole lot of projects just waiting in the garage to be completed! Going to start small, but hope to get the big ones done and posted within the calender year.
