Curbside Rescue Makeover

Can you believe someone set this little table out for trash pickup?  They just didn't see it's potential.  I admit it looked pretty rough when I rescued it, but all it needed was some TLC and a litttle paint.

I'm really excited about this find because older pieces typically are better constructed and have more intricate detailing than newer furniture.  I love the way the ASCP creates an authentic aged look on older furniture, and it sounds amazing to work with. However it doesn't fit into my budget so I needed to sand and prime before painting.

I spray painted the legs with Rust-oleum's Heirloom White and then rolled Behr's Country White satin on the flat surfaces. To better protect the finish I applied 2 coats of  clear paste wax.

What a difference a little paint can make, wonder if its previous owner would want to "kick it to the curb" now?
