If you've been reading along, you already know about my roadside find night table and the tutorial on how I removed the wood veneer from it.  In case you missed this post you can catch up on it here how to remove wood veneer from wood furniture

This year I decided to do a complete makeover of one of the bedrooms in our home. The room is now complete and you can see it here  (guest bedroom makeover).  I wanted to use this night table in the bedroom, but not looking like this.

But more like this.

Isn't she a beauty!

I applied three coats of clear gloss polyurethane to the top and the bottom. I did the same with the legs and the drawer. 
Here it is after one coat.

Here is a picture of the top of the night table before I removed the wood veneer.  Removing the water-stained wood veneer made this table new again!  I am so thrilled with the results!

It was worth all the mess 

I used gold metallic spray paint on the knob

  1. Great roadside find, and nice transformation. The hubby has an antique buffet that has veneer that's peeling off. I haven't a clue how to fix that, but now that I know it can be removed and still be beautiful, I will have to see if he is willing to do that.

    1. Thank you Linda! If you do decide to go ahead and remove the veneer off of your antique buffet I think you will be happy with the results.

  2. It was soooooo totally worth the mess, she's such a delicate piece of awesomeness. I'm so glad she wasn't smothered in paint, she looks lovely now.
