Retro Kitchen Table: Before and After

We’ve been pretty busy getting the apartment “livable” but we did manage to do a quick makeover of a retro table Andrew was given from his mom. It was in rough shape, rusty legs and badly worn red and white laminate.

Andrew removed the rust from the legs and coated them with a chrome spray paint. Then we taped off the very cute scalloped edges and sprayed them with Krylon pistachio spray paint.

Finally, the top was coated with a white epoxy spray paint for durability. We suggest you do any large surface like this in VERY thin coats. This is the one problem we have, the surface has remained slightly tacky because we didn’t wait long enough between coats. Luckily it’s still usable and adds some fun to the kitchen!
