Vintage Nesting Tables Updated the Easy Way

Inspire others...share!

You would think by now I would have learned my lesson that there will be true gems that pop out at me at a thrift store. It’s happened time and time again, and this particular time was no different. If you remember in my recent post, I scored an antique library table and refinished it – see in this post. Now it’s time for the other find that followed me home that same day. These vintage nesting tables are too cute to leave behind, right?

They were buried under other items for sale in the thrift store and I almost missed them since, as I mentioned in my other post, my kids were doing a thrift store scavenger hunt. I had no intention of coming home with more furniture. But…as you can see that quickly fell to the wayside.

This set was sturdy for the most part, but did have ample wear to the top surfaces. The part that got my heart palpitating were the beautiful turned legs, and the gorgeous heirloom maple tops. I spy potential!

Although there are not obvious manufacturer markings, I am 99% sure these are Ethan Allen tables as I’ve seen these exact tables in other places. I was delighted to no end to get to work on them. First, I wanted to uncover that delicious wood grain in that heirloom maple. Funny (not so funny) thing is during the restoration of the antique library table I just refinished, I killed my favorite sander, a DeWalt random orbit. It is a beast of a workhorse that lasted me for ages, so of course I bought another.

Apparently my old sander was in rougher shape than I thought because when I started this new one up I was like…ooooohhhhh… I couldn’t believe how smooth it operated and took the finish off lickety-split.

When I saw that wood coming to life, I couldn’t help but touch it. This maple was so fun to work with. I had no intention of covering the tops of these vintage nesting tables, rather wanted to showcase them. To give them the best look, I turned to my favorite Zibra paint brushes.

Zibra Paint Brushes ~ Fan and Round ~ for vintage nesting tables | prodigalpieces.com

These two, the Fan Brush and the Round Brush, would help me work some color fun onto the skirts and legs. For the color selections I choose 3 different colors by Dixie Belle: Hurricane Gray, Vintage Duck Egg, and Manatee Gray. You can see how I’ve used these paints in other furniture, craft, and builds in these posts too.

I being with my Fan Brush on the skirts. The size is perfect to wipe across and fill in the routed details in a flash. One of the best parts about these brushes is that they leave no brush strokes and hold enough paint so that I don’t have to continually dip it to get coverage.

For the legs, I used the Round Brush. Let me tell ya, there is nothing better to get turnings painted. I even tried the fan brush on the leg to just see how it would do, and I had to keep worrying about excess gathering and drips. The round brush is designed to fit into those crevices with just the right amount of paint saving you time and hassle of a messy finish. Each differently shaped brush has a purpose that it’s suited for.

While letting the paint on the first table cure, I turned my attention to the largest of the set. It had some wobbly action going on, so I just removed the skirt and legs and reset them with my favorite wood glue. Easy enough to do, and now stable and ready to go.

While the larger table was drying, I painted the second table. Then it was the larger table’s turn. All of the bottoms of the tables were done in short order, and then it was time for the table tops to get some lovin’.

I’ve said it before, but I like a low-sheen, durable finish on most of my pieces, so I again turned to Gator Hide as my topcoat. My Palm Pro helped me get a perfect finish with no strokes and done in a flash. This brush fits neatly in my palm making the job light on my wrist and hand.

After apply two coats of the topcoat, I let it cure and then they’re done!

How cute are these vintage nesting tables that were given new life by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Oh what fun the kids and I had seeing these vintage nesting tables come to life. We were telling each other which table was our favorite. I must say that we were all pretty smitten with each color as they individually make us smile. Which one is your favorite?

I went with the subtle tone contrast to make it more fun than just painting them all the same color. As a mama to 6 kiddos I know how fun it is to, “get the green table, or the light gray table”. We’ve all been there, right?

The vintage nesting tables came out as I had hoped – showcasing the grain in their natural state and solid as a rock. I wish I could show you how they shimmer. mmm…

It was super fun to style all this with pastels and all sorts of fun colors. However, these tables have the neutral tones and would look good in almost any setting. How cool is that I even got to use my new Luggy Basket? I just LOVE that thing!

    I especially like that you painted everything but the tops in different colors. Very pretty. I am just wrapping up the pre-prep to repaint my kitchen cupboards. That mean I am buying paint and painting supplies today. That means I will probably start without Zibra brushes. All of the retro fitting for the new walloven Santa brought and all of the other prep is going to take quite a while.

    Again, I am so amazed by your vision! Using the three colors and just on the skirts and legs make them look more like a set. It gives them dimension and a whole lot of interest. I love wood and I love paint. I am constantly tickled by how you can bring out the best in a piece by utilizing both. My heart beats faster when you pull out that duck egg blue, but oooh those grays….they really set off that delicious blue. I have a pair of nesting tables (I say a pair because there are only two–one for each kiddo I guess, but hey they nest). I have not considered painting them, however, If I win the Zibra brushes, I will paint the skirts and legs of them. I may let the boys choose the colors; I can always repaint them right?

    I have Ethan Allen tables in my family room that I’ve been thinking about doing something to. My Mom bought them in in the late 80’s or early 90’s. All three have drop leaf sides but each has a unique shape. The smallest table has a lamp in the middle. The lamp needs to be rewired so the that one is in the garage. The finish has held up well–which I expect from Ethan Allen–but there are some chips in the coffee table. The legs and cross braces are square. The wood is beautiful so now I’m thinking I’ll try sanding the finish off and go from there!

    Well, I picked up some dining room chairs for a refugee family, and I think they need some paint. Might be just the right project for the new brushes! Thanks for a shot at them, Larissa! Love these little nesting tables!

    The tables are gorgeous. I have a side table I have been meaning to redo for a really long time. I would paint it first.

      Thank you. Those get so much use that you often don’t realize how much TLC they need.

    I love these nesting tables Larissa although I think if I had done them I would have stuck to one color for all three. I truly admire how you always attempt to keep the natural wood exposed but add some fun color to!
    As far as these Libra brushes I adore them! I currently have 3 of them but am missing the one I really would love to try (and need lol!) the round brush. I just finished painting my stairway railings using the square brush instead because I cant seem to find the round one in any local stores and I was too anxious to get it done to order online and also have to pay the extra shipping fee lol! It worked pretty good but I’m guessing the round one would have been much easier. Wish me luck! Have a lovely and warmer day. (i’m in northern Illinois and it will be a balmy 32 degrees today, yay some warmer temps!)

    Painting chairs & a hutch soon We need these brushes so badly. I volunteer with a nfp that teaches women in recovery how to redo & renew thrifted items that are then sold to support the program. Having the right brushes makes all the difference. Love my round zibra brush & have used the Sq brush before

    I’ve tried many brushes as we’ve been building our own home and restoring vintage furniture for years. Anxious to try these brushes on a dining set I inherited from my parents. Plan to restore the lovely maple tops and paint the base and legs similar to your nesting tables!

      I have too and I had about completely given up hope. I am not kidding as I was praying about what to do, Zibra contacted me to give them a try. My kids thought me nuts when I was dancing around after giving them a test run. I was sold.
