Black Distressed Endtable Makeover: Themed Furniture Makeover Day

Hi friends!  Welcome to my favorite day of the month – our Themed Furniture Makeover Day!

This month’s theme is “Black”

My favorite piece of all time is this Black Dresser Makeover that I did a few years ago.  It was definitely a drab to fab transformation and I tried my best to achieve the distressed Pottery Barn finish. I called it my Pottery Barn Wannabe Dresser!

I have had a pine endtable for quite some time and decided to give it the same look as well.  Here is what we started out with:

Typical 90s solid wood furniture that I am sure went well with the plaid wallpaper, floral fabrics and faux greenery of the time.

I gave it a quick coat of black and it sat on the back burner for awhile, like for three years a long while until this month’s theme rolled around.  I promise I am not a furniture hoarder but I do have a few pieces stored here and there!

Anyway, back to the makeover.  A few more coats of black satin paint and some heavy distressing on the edges with the palm sander and it looks good as new!

I think the new iron hardware totally brings it up to date. You can purchase similar hardware here:

And the Pottery Barn Inspired Dresser hardware here:


It’s going to reside on my porch with a few pumpkins until the end of fall.  It will also be a great place to rest a big bowl of Halloween candy!

Do you like the look of black distressed furniture? 
I love it! 
Now let’s see what my other blogger friends have to show you today!

  1. Tami, we have that exact table set…bought when we got our first new house. I've been wanting to paint them forever, so you give me some good inspiration. I think I'll fill in the hollow line around the top though. It aggravates me. With critters in the house there's all manner of stuff that gets caught in there and it always looks yucky. I really like the matte finish of the chest.
