Makeover Monday: End Table

A couple weeks ago, my friend Theresa picked up one of those old-school two-tiered end tables for me.

It was out at the curb, and she figured I could make one of those Pinterest Lego tables with it.

Or something.

After eyeballing it for a bit, I decided I was too lazy.

I was going to just paint it, but I thought maybe that would be too boring.

I wanted to do something that would make it stand out a bit, and yet still be functional as an all-purpose end table.

I had picked up some maps from a flea market, and after looking through them, I decided to go with an interesting map of Mount Everest.  I loved all the blues and greys, and thought it would go well with the Annie Sloan Paris Grey I used to paint the table.

After decoupaging, I still thought it needed a little something.  Something for the top.


"Explore" with an arrow built into the word would be just the thing.  I painted that in black and was finally pleased.

The only work that remained was to distress it with my orbital sander, and then add a coat of clear wax.

All done.  I like it!

Do you...?

I'm linking this post up with a few blog hops.  See the list in my sidebar.
