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!
