Side Table Makeover

My daughter and I were out treasure hunting when we came upon this little side table. It needed some love but I liked the fact that it looked like a mini vintage fridge. At $12 it was a no brainer.

That is not how it looked when I bought it however. It was solid but banged up.

The top looked like it had really been abused and the sides were scratched, but all of the hardware was there.

The first thing I did was to remove the hardware. They were all solid brass so I got out the Bar Keepers, you might remember I posted about how much I love this stuff. Well, it cleaned the hardware like new.

I love how it turned out. It is now the side table in my blue room.

I still need to find the right lamp for it or maybe update the lamp shade.

Here is the before and after pictures of this side table.
