Give That Old Table a Spring Makeover

It shouldn’t cost a fortune to perk up your kitchen. A bright coat of paint on your kitchen table will give the whole room a quick but dramatic makeover in time for Spring.


Choose your table

If your own wood kitchen table needs to be perked up, so much the better. But if you don’t have a table you’re ready to tackle, find a wood table that needs some love at a thrift or consignment store. Pedestal tables look particularly fresh with a bright new coat.

Making over a table can kick up dust and put a lot of particulate matter into the air. Take care to use proper precautions if dust bothers your nose.
