A THRIFT STORE SPIN AND FLIP TABLE MAKEOVER PLUS SOME FURNITURE FIXER UPPER FUN!
Hi, sweet #sifamily! Today is Furniture Fixer Upper day with my talented FFU crew! I’m sharing their makeovers and how-to tutorials at the bottom of today’s post…
But first, take a look at this charming spin and flip table. My sister Andrea found it at our local ReStore a few months back. Judging from the finish, I’m guessing it’s from the Bombay Company but I could be wrong. I don’t see any markings on it. If any of you know the proper use or manufacturer of this table, I’d love to hear in the comments below.
Here’s the ‘new’ look. Thanks to all of you who chimed in on Tuesdays with your color choices. 🙂 I’m always amazed at what a little paint can do!

SPIN AND FLIP TABLE MAKEOVER
Before I get into this makeover, does anyone miss thrift shopping as much as I do? I can’t wait until our thrift stores, flea markets, and antique shops re-open. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I even miss the musty old smell that hits me like a ton of bricks when I first walk in. 🙂
I started by giving this table a good cleaning and light sanding. Then I applied a base coat of Gravel Road to the entire table.
As I mentioned, I’m not sure what this table is specifically for — but it’s super cute. It can be used as a small side table (pic #1) but then it spins around and underneath is a little storage cubby. (pic 2 & 3). When the top half is folded down over the cubby, it becomes a larger table. It would be a great game table or would even work as a small desk in a tight space.
After the base coat dried, I applied a heavy wash of this Antebellum Blue. The mixture was about a 4:1 ratio of paint to water.
While it was still wet, I blotted with a paper towel. Random blotting leaves a small amount of the Gravel Road peeking through and slightly tones down the blue. I used the same painting technique on this cabinet here.
With very little paint (I share the dry brushing technique in this video here) I used small circular motions on the edges of the harp base and edges of the tabletop.
As a fun surprise, when the tabletop is completely open, I stenciled a floral Madelia Garden Design.
This stencil is going into retirement and Redesign With Prima will no longer be selling it but they have plenty of gorgeous floral stencils you can substitute for here.
And now for some FURNITURE FIXER UPPER FUN!
