I found this cute little end table at a yard sale. I think it was a record cabinet in a former life because of the slats on the bottom shelf - there are corresponding slats on the under side of the top shelf but the slats were missing. I know some really like the chippy look but this table had stains and paint had been spilled on it. So a rehab was definitely needed.
After some cleaning, sanding, and a couple of coats of homemade chalk paint made from Valspar's "Transit Pass," the finish was antiqued with Minwax "Early American" stain. The transformation was almost complete.
The top of the cabinet definitely needed something to make it a little more interesting, so I visited thegraphicsfairy.com and found the perfect typography. Much better!
End tables and night stands seem to be interchangeable now, so this cute little table works for either!
