End Table Upcycle

cheap end table


This is an old project that I did years ago, but we still use the table, so I thought I would include it.  I had picked up one of those very cheap unfinished round end tables at Zellers.  It was similar to this Walmart one, but with a different base. I am pretty sure I paid $10 for it.  The table is designed to have a floor length table cloth on it, so the table didn’t have any finish on it at all.

As I said, our table is similar to the one above, but the base is different.  It is quite sturdy and I was able to make it work with a bit of paint.

The inspiration for the table paint design came from cushion covers I had made from an old swimming sarong that I never wore.  I loved the print, but didn’t like the way the sarong fit. These cushions sit on the back of the futon that we have kept over the years for a spare bed. The original cover on the futon was apple green, but the cushions are still used and look fine with the navy blue cover that is now on it.

Here is the original cushion cover that inspired the paint design for the cabinet.
