Vintage End Tables – A Quick Furniture Makeover


Here are the before and after pictures of two vintage end tables we refinished this week. They are versatile side tables that can be used as nightstands in a guestroom or elsewhere. Made of Mahogany wood, but a bit outdated with old fashioned leather tops.

The finish on them were scratched and a little worn, so we took to our furniture painting skills and transformed them to have a whole new look. We love the two toned look and that is achieved by choosing two colors. In this case, a soft French gray color paired with antique white.

In this picture you can see the difference between clear wax on the left and dark (antiquing) wax on the right. Clear wax seals and protects the paint finish and the piece can be done after applying this step. However, if you wish to add some dimension and interest to your finish, you can us dark wax to achieve an aged patina.

If you have furniture pieces or cabinets that you would like refinished and are local to our area in Sussex County, NJ – please contact us. We can help! We have literally painted 1000’s of piece of furniture since our business was established in 2012. Please check out our custom painting page or contact us should you have any questions at all.
