Navy and gold vintage end table makeover. The fab furniture flippin contest.


Last month I featured a gorgeous green hutch makeover from Thirty Eighth Street at one of our Best of the Weekend Link Parties. This hutch was part of The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest. Now, I’ve never heard of this sort of contest but my furniture flipping heart started to beat a little faster with each word I read. Basically, the contest runs monthly with a different sponsor and prize for furniture flipping lovers (like me!!). Hello? What could be more fun?? You can bet your sweet you know what that I signed up on the spot.  Details about how to become involved are at the bottom of this post if you get excited by furniture makeovers and want to participate, too.


Fab Furniture Flippin Contest


This month Evey from Evey’s Creations and Lynn from Fern Avenue are hosting the contest and all of the contestants will be linking their projects up on their blogs.

This month’s contest is sponsored by HomeRight and y’all know how much I love my paint sprayer and everything else HomeRight these days. And since they were so cool about sponsoring a giveaway for us last month and all, I’m kind of a big fan.

Home Right Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest October

This month’s theme is “Spray It Pretty”.  You can see why I jumped at the chance since I’ve been known to spray paint pretty much anything and everything. In this case, I had a go at a couple of end tables that have been sitting in my garage forever.  (Which meant dirty and dusty).

After a good cleaning with some tsp, they got a quick coat of primer. I used my HomeRight Paint Sprayer for both the primer and the finish for this project (Which meant quick and easy).

The primer dries really quickly when applied with the sprayer.

I decided to go in a different direction this time by using a semi-gloss finish in my favorite Naval from Sherwin Williams.

I have used semi-glosses in the past but the brush and roller marks are usually visible and this bothers my perfectionist self. Big time. I haven’t used a semi or high gloss with the paint sprayer and I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. The first coat gave me some cause to panic as it wasn’t covering as well as with a regular eggshell finish.

But by the second coat, I was doing my typical happy dance that I always do when I’ve used my paint sprayer. In the picture below, the table had just been sprayed with a second coat and was nice and shiny. The semi-gloss finish took a little longer to dry than I’m used to. Once it was dry however, the paint levelled out beautifully.

Once everything had dried, I brought the tables inside for a coat of gold spray paint. I may have forgotten to tape off the bottom of the furniture before spray painting which meant I had a few touch ups to do.

The handles were given the same splash of gold spray paint as the legs.

As always, the sprayer left a totally professional finish. No brush marks, no splotchy spots…just perfection.

Here’s the end result! So pleased 🙂

I’m going to try to contain myself but I’m so seriously thrilled with how these end tables turned out that I got a little picture happy.

  1. Hi! I love this makeover. The Gold accents really bring up a notch to being classy! Well done. I’m shopping for a new paint sprayer and I was just wondering if you found this one to be heavy? I hope you have a great weekend!

    • I love this paint sprayer and highly recommend it. I don’t find it heavy at all but I also try to switch hands once in awhile because I’m old and all 😉 My hands actually cramp more with a brush and roller but that’s probably because it takes longer to paint. The sprayer is quick so you’re not holding it for hours on end unless you were doing cabinets or something like that. Hope that helps.

  2. Love. Love. Love this. Something about Navy and Gold that just makes everything feel so rich. Great simple DIY. Hoping I can get back to doing some projects soon. This inspired me.

    • Ha! That vase happened when I was starting to think about those tables. The vase was faster (as in 5 minutes lol). Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I’m just stopping by to let you know that we will be featuring your table at our party that starts on Monday at 7 pm. Happy dance time! Thank you for bringing such a amazing masterpiece to our party. I hope to see you next week. Lou Lou Girls

  4. Wow! What a great job the sprayer does. I am really impressed. We have a lot of blue in our home and this color would be perfect! I love the way you styled it and the gold dots on the wall! You have a gorgeous home!

    • Thanks, Nikki! Those gold dots were advertised for a little girl’s room. I totally ignored that advice and plopped them in my bedroom….big girls like dots, too 😉
