Salvation of a Pinterest Fail

This is the Pinterest-fail table that I purchased in April 2015. It resided in my basement in a corner for about a year.

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation about everything from home renovation to gluten-free goodies. Today on the blog, I am chatting about a Pinterest-fail table I purchased a little over a year ago. To be honest, I totally forget about this little project until my friend Buddy Roberts, the special publications editor for The Daily Home|Anniston Star, asked me if I wanted to contribute a couple of articles to the May 2016 edition. He mentioned the Pinterest-fail post from April 2015 as a possible option. Bless! I totally abandoned that fixer-upper. In a mad dash, I ran down the basement stairs and began searching high and low for that end table. It took me a bit; however, I found it buried in a corner…poor little, unloved table. In the heat of the moment, I promised that Pinterest-fail I would fix it…I would make it beautiful and would display it proudly…somewhere in my home…or on my front porch.

I painted the bottom of the table a rich navy and used an espresso glaze to bring out the distressed areas.

The top of the table is silver and the same espresso glaze as I used on the bottom. (I mixed the navy and the espresso glaze.)

(I would tell you more about the navy and the glaze, but I mixed colors together until I got the blue and brown I had envisioned. The silver is Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover in Metallic Silver. Click here to shop + more info.)

I kept the original color of the belt, but I glazed it with the espresso color to add a bit of depth.

I am not sure what took me so long to fix this Pinterest-fail. Perhaps, I grew frustrated with it…or I just got busy with other things more pressing….Believe me. It is easy to start a project, but finishing one is sometimes not so easy *wink*
