Retro end tables in distressed Peacock Blue with Black Glaze - Before and After from Facelift FurnitureI loved the potential I saw in these retro end tables I purchased at Goodwill. Ideal candidates for refinishing, they took on a new life when painted, glazed, and distressed.

With their solid bones and great lines, the top surfaces made of Formica weren’t a deterrent to refinishing. Primed with Zinnser 1-2-3, they were they given a new life in Peacock Blue and Black Glaze.

Distressing revealed the original wood tones. The vintage pulls were reused, providing a throw back to the original design.

Part of a custom order, the tables were set beside each other in the owner’s home, repurposed as a coffee table.
