Two-Toned Pedestal Tables


I found two similar pedestal, side tables at a garage sale for $8 each.  They are actually identical except that one has a round top and the other a square.  The original finish was orange and dated, but I had to get them because I loved their shape and pedestal bases, not to mention their sturdy, solid construction.


I started by removing the old finish with my palm sander.


Once I thoroughly removed the old stain, I painted the pedestal bases with a coat of primer.  


I painted the table legs and base with my new favorite, creamy, white paint: Linen White by Behr.  I got lucky because I discovered this color in the "oops" pile at Home Depot.  After painting and distressing the table bases, I applied two coats of Minwax Dark Walnut stain to the tabletops.


All the items I used on the tabletops are from yard sales.


I purchased these lovely, antique bottles at a yard sale for $1 each. I got the vintage crock, in the background, for $2.


This bottle is my favorite; I just adore the shape of it!



The round table:




I picked up this vintage, crystal lamp at an estate sale last week for $2!  Do you remember when I recovered this lamp shade?  I made it to sell in the shop, but I ended up keeping it because I loved it too much.  Now I am glad I held onto it because it looks perfect with my new crystal lamp!

Oh my goodness. I found the same set of side tables at a yard sale last week. I only bought the round top one and now wish I bought both. I would have probably gotten them for the same price as you did. I bought a bunch of stuff and they may have been even cheaper. Darn! I should've bought both. I am planning on doing the same style (dark stained top with white distressed legs) as you did. Your beautiful work confirms that I am going to do it that way. Thanks so much for sharing!

Love these tables!! The square one if my favorite, just because it's different than what you usually see. You have found some great treasures, too.
