You never need to buy new furniture when you can simply buy used and refinish. This Sweet Country End Tables Makeover tutorial demonstrates the transformative power of sanding, wood stain, and a new paint job. These DIY end tables went from boring, and a little quirky looking to absolutely adorable with just a bit of DIY elbow grease. When you refinish furniture, you get major value for the affordable price of used furniture that you can find at auctions, garage sales, or second hand stores.
From the blogger: "I picked this two old end tables up at an estate auction for a song and I couldn't wait to get them home and give them a sweet country makeover!"

Stain the tops using a brush and putting the stain on very heavy. Then wait for it to set twenty minutes before wiping it off with an old towel.
Wipe off the base of these tables too to make sure there were no stain spatters where you will be painting.
Prime the bases with two coats.
Paint the bases with two coats.
Use a satin poly acrylic for a sealant. Put two coats on over the painted parts as well as the tops of the tables for extra protection.
