Ugly Side Table MADE cute!

I am always stopping by Goodwill as often as I can. It's always hit or miss with Thrift Stores. Sometimes I find GREAT stuff and other times there is nothing good! I'm always looking for old looking furniture that I can put new cute hardware on and paint. I'm really picky so I'm always happy when I find something I like!
This table I probably would have NEVER bought untill I saw the price tag of $3.00! It was such a steal I had to see what I could do!


So I got out my Sander and went to town on the top, drawer and lightly everywhere else. Then I primed with Valspar RED/BROWN primer. Don't mind the messy can... I had the spray paint handle on wrong so it was getting everywhere! That Spray paint handle is amazing though! I highly recommend it! It was only 2 dollars at Lowes and it attatches to any spray paint can.
Next I used Glossy Black Rustoleum Spray Paint


 I spray painted the gold hardware with some flat black spray paint I had lying around and it's finished! I had decided when I bought this that I would sell it on craigslist to make a profit on it. (Trying to save up some extra money for a Secret Christmas Present for the Hubby) But it I were going to keep it I would have put a really cute clear crystal looking handle on. They have adorable ones at Hobby Lobby!

Now it's no Million Dollar Side table but not bad for $3.00 right??!!
