Shabby Coffee Table Makeover


It was a perfect day for photos. I am in love with this one. Setting everything up in front of my front porch, it's my favorite spot. Wait.....I should be talking about the table!! ;-) 
But, I really do like that photo. 

I found this table at Goodwill. Don't ya just *love* it!! 
I found it unpainted and unloved, hidden between two shoe displays. 

So.....pretty darn simple. And, I would've taken pictures except my camera is kinda out-of-state. Should be arriving in the mail soon. :-)
I sanded. 
I cleaned.
I sprayed.
I sanded again.
Here are some of those sanded spots:
And, I kept the original hardware. I thought it fit the look I was going for. 
And, no.....this is not my day job. :-) So, no worries.
I am a shabby furniture newbie. 

Any good tips for me??
