So we have this corner of our bathroom that's been bugging me. We have a LOT of space around our tub and it's become home to this and that because it's a flat space and flat spaces tend to do that. I wanted to make it look more cohesive and put together. When I saw this for $3.99:
on one of my "Goodwill hunting" trips, I had an idea. I sanded it (during which I remembered to take the before pic and made a note to myself that if this is going to become a habit buy a small electric sander) and gave it a spray of heirloom white:
After bringing it in and giving it a coat of an antique linen, I got cracking, or crackling, by covering the top and bottom shelf with crackle medium. After that was dry, I went over it with an antique white , crackle crackle , and voila:
I dry brushed the legs with the antique white to give them a worn look. The finished product (with a couple of 40% off baskets from Michaels):

Great job. You certainly made a $4 table look good!
Now following you from FMBT :)
I'm your newest follower from fmbt! I love your goodwill makeover. I'm addicted to Goodwill. And spraypaint. But not in a bad way. I swear.
Thanks for the feedback and the visits. I'll jump over to each of your places. Keeping up with these blog hops is hard work (but fun). Have a great day.
What a pretty table! You did a great job!
Thanks Lisa. I like the way it turned out and enjoy looking at it in my bathroom :)
You definitely made that table look fabulous. I am going to have to try crackling a piece of furniture soon! I just love how it looks - what product did you use? Thanks for linking up to Be Inspired today.
I just used Plaid's crackle medium but last week on a picture frame, I tried white glue and it worked well too.
It looks SO much better! I love crackle finish. You made it look right. Great job! (And...I luuuuv me some chocolate! Always a good move!)
Thanks for sharing @ Anything Related!
Way to go--no one would ever guess that started out as a $4 table! Thanks for linking up to the under $100 party.
Wow, I love that crackle treatment! It looks great!
