From Trash to Treasure Tutorial: Mid-Century Modern End Table

Here's a mid-century end table I picked up at a thrift store. I don't know why, but I really like these old retro tables. They're all over the place at thrift stores, too. Since this was my first one, I got a cheap, laminate model for practice.

The shiny laminate was THICK, so I had to really get in there with the sander. 

Since the wood wasn't that high of a quality, I decided to paint rather than stain it; 
so out came the primer!

It took more coats than a normal piece because of the laminate, 
but I went with some retro-green tones that would restore it's retro design.

If you're in the Pittsburgh area & interested in purchasing this end table, please contact me at this blog or email
