You may remember this mid century modern small side table from last year.
I got a great deal on it at Vendors’ Village—only 99 cents! It needed a little TLC for sure.
I loved how it turned out, soooo cute! You can get the original makeover details in my post Small Vintage Side Table Makeover.
While being stored in the garage, it got a huge scratch on the top. That’s no good!
Because I was so in love with how the base looked with the glazed paint, I only wanted to work on fixing the table top. I used painter’s tape to make sure I only painted the table top with black spray paint. Even after sanding the scratch, you can see it is still visible through the new spray paint.

Stenciling the table top will make that scratch disappear. I had the perfect stencil that would allow me to make a four square pattern on the small side table. I love using Martha Stewart foam pouncers for stenciling. I used regular latex paint for the stenciling.
After the paint dried I did a little bit of distressing with a sanding sponge to make it a little more aged.
So much better! It’s such a cute little side table.
While showing the pictures to my friends, one friend fell in love with it. I told her she could have it, but I don’t think she took me seriously. So, if she is reading this, I was serious, and if you want it, you can have it. It seems like I’ve doing re-doing a lot of former projects lately. I’m okay with that—it takes a little pressure off me to crank out something new every week. It also shows YOU that there are ways to save a piece that others may cast away to the garbage pile.
What would you have done about the large scratch?
