I recently started a Painted End Tables Pinterest Board and I can’t wait to pin this Peacock Makeover on it! It started out as this sad three-legged end table I found curbside along with this vintage dresser I restyled a few weeks back.
And speaking of past posts, I want to thank each and every one of you who participated in last weeks [Re]Design With Prima Giveaway. I’m announcing the lucky winner today, so stay with me!
So back to the end table, MMM took one look at this roadside find and said: “only YOU would pick this one up… anyone else would leave that three-legged piece of junk out there!
He was joking of course. He’s a lover of all things wood and vintage just like me. And I will confess if I didn’t have his skills to replicate this back leg, I may have left this one RIP roadside. But luckily I am blessed with this wonderful and talented man who’s generous enough to indulge my odd obsessions!
Here’s what we started with and it makes for an amazing before and after… don’t you just LOVE this color!

PEACOCK END TABLE MAKEOVER::
As I mentioned, the back leg was MIA so MMM replicated it perfectly. After some heavy duty filling and sanding this is what I was working with.
After the repairs were made and all the flaws in the wood heavily sanded, I used a black spray paint over the entire table. My thoughts for the black was two-fold. To prime and seal the wood so I wouldn’t have any bleedthrough – and I also wanted a black base to show through this vibrant peacock.
The problem was some bleedthrough was still coming through after the first coat. Rather than spray another coat of smelly paint, I coated it with Dixie Belle’s BOSS.
Tip: Dixie Belle’s BOSS can be used OVER paint if you are still seeing bleedthrough! I used this exact technique on this stubborn teacart makeover and it works amazing! As an added bonus, BOSS comes in clear (looks milky when its first applied as you can see in the pic below but dries clear) so the color of your undercoat shows through beautifully… and it’s waterbased so NO smell!
No bleedthrough and the black base shows through nicely. I also top coated with Black Wax to add extra protection with contrast and texture. What do you think?
I’m loving this color! It a happy color that gives this vintage end table a modern look!
I’m excited this end table has a happy ending and thanks for sharing it with me today!
