Do you love shopping for cheap furniture at thrift stores, garage sales or flea markets? If you do, you aren’t alone! Just about, everyone loves a bargain. So what can you do if you find a cheap table that is rather ugly, but for some odd reason you just have to have it?
Why, to paint it a bright color of course. Look at the table in this photograph – it stands out and becomes the focal point of the room. Why? Because it is painted in a bright pink. Of course, if pink isn’t your color, don’t worry, you can paint a cheap table ANY color.
All you have to do is sand the table with fine grit sandpaper to remove any debris and dust, select your paint color and start painting.
If you really want to add contrast to your brightly painted table, why not add a dark area rug under it as shown in this photograph. The black rug contrasts the pink and makes the table stand out, and in a big way!
There is no right or wrong when it comes to painting a cheap table to create a focal point in a room.
