About a two years ago I came across a piano bench for $8 at a thrift store up the street from me. At the time, I figured I'd use it for an entryway bench and it would double as storage since the bench opens. I moved the piano bench from room to room but it never quite fit right until one day I set it as an end table. I was surprised I actually liked it in that spot. Since I liked it I decided to update it to give it a more chic look. I love how it turned out! If you have a similar piece of furniture laying around you can use the same process that I did.
Here's what I started with
What you'll need:
Rustoleum Black Spray Paint
The process was fairly simple. I wanted to it still have a worn/chic (crazy combo I know) look so I didn't sand the table or repair any of the wood damage. I starting by spray painting the table. I did about 3 coats all over, allowing each coat to dry before starting on the next.
After the table was good and dry I used a ruler measuring along the side of the table to determine how far apart I wanted my nailheads. I spaced them about 2cm apart. I made marks every 2cm and then went back with my drill to make the tiny holes. This made it easy to just push the nailheads into the table.
