Side Table Before and After

I’ve had this side table for a couple of years. There was never really anything wrong with it, but I’ve never been a fan of the dark stain.

Thanks to summer finally arriving in Utah, I got outside and lightly sanded and painted it. I didn’t even bother to use our paint sprayer, I just used good old semi-gloss spray paint.
After painting, I used my electric sander to distress the table.
As you can see, I was fairly liberal with the sanding. I wasn’t sure how I’d like it in the end, but I’m happy with the look!
