From Trash to Treasure
Hey everyone! It’s Regina from Saved From Salvage, check out how this project went From Trash to Treasure by turning an old table into an adorable plant stand. Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint and Transfers really transformed this old side table.

Step 1: Prepping for paint
After gathering my supplies, I began cleaning my piece with Dixie Belle’s White Lightning cleaner. This product needs to be mixed with water in either a spray bottle or bowl.
Step 2: Time to paint!
After the table was cleaned, I then began to paint the top of the table with the pretty soft DBP Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint in Cactus green. I then painted the legs and base in DBP Silk All-In One Mineral Paint in Oasis and then wrapped the legs with painters tape to make stripes. Next, I used a pencil eraser to create the spots on the legs. Finally, I relied on my fingerprint to create the Dessert Rose dots on the top sides. Even though this paint has a built-in primer and top coat, I decided to add a layer of clear coat to protect the transfers and top especially since I’ll be watering the plants on top.
Step 3: Design time
Lastly, I wanted to try out the Succulent transfers on two of the corners of the table. I taped down the transfer to prevent movement when putting it in place. To put the transfer on the top of the table, I applied pressure from the outside edges inwards to the top edges.
Such an easy and quick refresh. Now, this broken side table is a bright spot in my sunroom sporting plants.
