A $6.00 Side Table

This is the side table I just made last week painted and all finished. My wife painted it with chalk paint and added a stencil to to the top. I think it turned out really well. It was made with from a 2×8 southern yellow pine board I bought from Lowe’s for $6.00. We plan on giving it away to our local PBS station so they can auction it off in their annual pledge drive Action Auction next month. We’re going to split the donation; I as the builder, MVFlaim Furnituremaker and my wife Anita as the painter, Bella Chic Decor. It’ll be intersting to see how it does.

  1. Great find! You’re wife did a great job with chalk paint… Is that the Annie Sloan Coco Chalk Paint? I too recently found an inexpensive table (end table) and transformed it. Thanks so much for sharing!


    1. Yes my wife uses Annie Sloan. Don’t know the color she used but it may be coco or paris grey. She buys old furniture from antique shows and craigslist and repurposes them. This table I happened to make. Thanks for commenting.
