I've been on the hunt for a perfect cheap console table for my living room. I found this gem at an antique shop and haggled it down to $25. Just a quick sand with some medium grit sand paper, and a couple of coats of my fave "Heirloom White" by American Accents did the trick! This little table looked much better!
I considered buying new hardware, but in the spirit of being cheap a DIYer, I tried spray painting them with a color I like to call "gilver". Gold + Silver = Gilver. Add some gilver frames on top, and it all works well!
When we finally get paint on the walls, this little table will look great! Now I'm considering my options for what to put under the table. A crate with pillows maybe?
