This little corner table might just be my best thrift store find ever. At least the most economical. It was only $5.00 when I bought it about 10 years ago. And ever since then it’s been at the top of our stairs. This is the table that holds my year-long Christmas tree! So I figure that my total cost for the corner table and supplies was around $9.00, which comes out to a grand total of 7.5 cents PER MONTH that I’ve used it! lol… Yeah, I’m cheap! Here’s what it looked like when I bought it.

Corner Table Makeover Supplies
- thrift store table
- black spray paint
That’s it! All I did for prep was to clean it. If I was going to do this now I would sand it a bit before spraying but the finish has held up great over the years. Only one little scratch on the top.
But let me show you the secret… I only painted the parts that are showing at the front!
I’ve told you before that I like to start painting my jewelry cabinets upside down. This is why. Of course, no one has noticed in the last 10 years so I guess it doesn’t matter. But I sure wouldn’t do this on a piece I was selling.
I’ve learned a LOT in the last 10 years!
This is the first photo of the corner table I shared online.
