My little side table is complete! I can't believe it only took me an evening to complete the makeover on this little beauty. If I had known, I would have done it long ago.
A reminder of the before:
Here's a rundown of the process:
I took it outside, gave it a light sanding, wiped off the dust, & taped off the black top & chrome trim -
I kept those as is.
Got on my painting duds & broke out the spray paint.

you can actually see all the past/present colours of my house on these babies!
They're like a work of art in themselves! :)
|I used Krylon Metallic spray paint in Aluminum.|
And all systems go! I sprayed on the first coat:
And a second coat:
|After 2 coats. Before distressing.|
It was looking a little too space age for me at this point so I got out some black craft paint I had kickin' around & played around with some dry brushing on the corners & edges. I ended up dry brushing on some black paint & then smudging it (purposefully) with a paper towel to make it look a bit more distressed.
I think it will look especially stunning at Christmas time with my silver/white colour scheme.
Here's some more after shots:
