Thrifted Table Before and After: From Bland Brown to Sunshine Yellow


This "primitive" handmade table dates back to the 1940-60s. It's a classic, utilitarian piece with great lines, and replacing the brown with a saturated bright yellow was destiny Yellow and the table were fated to be, it just looks that right!


It took one can of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor White Primer and one and a half cans of Krylon Spray Sun Yellow Gloss spray paint to cover the brown but the result was worth it. In the words of the immortal autobot leader Optimus Prime, "Transform, and roll out!" Couldn't help the 1980s cartoon references  this saturated school bus yellow reminds me of the cartoons I grew on:


I like it hosting a printer as a side table and as a night stand, where the drawer comes in handy for housing little night-time necessities. I bought the table to sell at Southern Crossing Antique Mall but now it'll be hard to sell it, I kind of love seeing it around the house. Send me an e-mail if you're interested in the table.

Working on any interesting upcycled projects lately? Did you like this table better before or after its transformation?

    1. Thank you, glad I went with that instead of the orange I was considering. Bring neon orange is better for small details/doses I suppose.

  2. Loving that yellow, Van. And it's a known fact that no man (or woman) can refuse a good 80s cartoon reference.

  6. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful
    job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

  9. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've
    had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  25. When the unfortunate fate of life enlightened us arrange encounters, surely someone has and will appear in our lives will bring a certain lofty task. Each man stepped forward and left will leave the great lesson, that if not in the days of youth, the fear is that we have not been able to remember and lessons deep within.
