You know those industrial style tables that are so popular right now? You can find them just about anywhere, ranging from pricey originals to thrifty knock-offs. I've had a pair of nesting tables for a few years, and although they had a metal base, the tops were dark laminate, which attracted dust and dog hair by the minute! If the tables were square, it would be easy to cut some wood to fit and attach it to the top. But since they are round, this wasn't an option. So, I did the next best thing and painted the tops to look like the weathered industrial tables I love.
This is how the tables looked before their makeover. I taped off the metal base and was about to start spray painting them when I realized I hadn't taken a picture yet.
