Console Table Makeover

July 24, 2012

Some time back in 2010, I bought a zebra console table from HomeGoods for something like $120.

I liked it at the time and it went with the whole black and white thing I had going on at the time but as my style evolved, I started to like it less and less.

I didn't want to get rid of it completely because I like the chunky shape and clean lines and I thought that I should at least try to make it over into something I loved rather than going out and buying a replacement.

Side note: I started this project way back in December 2011 when I was still living in my condo so you may notice the flooring/window treatments/entire house change in future photos :)

To start the makeover, I cleared the table off:

And started ripping off the vinyl (?) zebra covering to see what kind of wood was hiding underneath:

It was particleboard. I knew it was going to be something cheap considering it was completely covered in the zebra vinyl but I was hoping for something different so I could have at least had the option to stain it down the road haha

Anyway, as I was removing the zebra vinyl, I started to remove the nailhead trim:

Eventually I had removed half of the zebra:

And more than a handful of the nailhead trim:

Once I had removed everything, I filled all of the holes with wood filler:

And then the table sat in my condo's hallway like that for 6 months until we moved into our new house. Clearly I'm on top of things around here haha

Anyway, after we finished our entertainment center, I started working on this bad boy again by sanding it all down:

Wiping it all off with a damp, lint-free cloth:

And then spraying it with primer to get it ready for painting!:

In case you're wondering, I used spray primer instead of roll-on primer because it's all I had on hand and I was too lazy to run to the store :)

Can you guess what color I decided to paint it? Check back tomorrow to find out!
