This vintage hexagon end table had seen it’s better day. That is, until it was upstyled! Of all the old pieces of furniture I like to refinish, hexagon end tables stand out on top.
Weary and worn, I have little desire to see these dated pieces in my home. Refinished with paint, glaze, and distressing, they take on a whole new life of character and eye-catching appeal.
This piece is upstyled in in distressed Peacock Blue. Black glaze accents the detailed areas. And old lion’s head pulls replaced the pulls original pulls (since one of them was broken).
This piece is also featured in our Hexagon End Tables Collection, which shows how these pieces have been refinished in all kind of colors!
Of all the vintage furniture I refinish, hexagon end tables are my favorite. Prior to refinishing, I find these dated pieces among those I would not want in my home.
Yet when painted, glazed, and distressed, they take on a whole new life. They have a renewed charm that adds great character to a living space.

Hexagon end tables are a favorite of mine to refinish, and I love the transformation that occurred with this weary and dated piece. In a previous post, I shared my technique for refinishing Formica laminate surfaces on pieces just like this one here.
Once that priming process was complete, I painted, glazed, and distressed the piece in Blazing Orange, with Black glaze accenting the detail and molding.
Distressing revealed the white primer and original wood tones. And the original pulls were spray painted black, tying in very nicely to the new look of the end table!

Hexagon end tables are one of my favorites to refinish, and here’s why. In their vintage state, I know of few pieces that look more dated–and to be honest–undesirable!
But when they are painted, glazed, and distressed, a major transformation occurs. What was once an cringe-worthy eye sore becomes a bold statement piece with lots of pop and character!
This chunky Ethan Allen piece, with all it’s wear and tear, took on a whole new look in Antiqued White with Espresso Glaze. And the distressing reveals both the original stain and lite pine wood tones.
Espresso glaze is a mix I’ve created from Ralph Lauren Black Truffles and Tobacco glaze colors. It has more of a dark coffee bean look to it, and it looks great on this upstyled end table!
