Last October I went yard sale-ing and found a $3 table. The guy had a sign on it, "cute table for your LPs." I thought, okay yeah. It literally fell apart when he put it in my car. He gave me some wood glue and I gave him $3.
I picked up some sandpaper and primer from Lowes and took it home. I wanted to think about the paint color a little bit so I planned to get that the next day. I took it completely apart and sanded and primed it, then left it to dry overnight. The next day I took the pieces to my parents' house so I could finish painting it in their garage. I also picked up the paint: American Tradition "Summer's End" and "Grand Hotel Awning Yellow."
After the first coat with a brush, dad suggested I use a sponge roller instead. I'm really glad I did. The paint went on really smooth. I glued it all back together and put the feet back on. I also scrubbed the feet with steel wool to get the rust off. They aren't shiny new, but they look TONS better.
And here it is in situ, holding all my LPs and 7-inches. I'm so happy with how it turned out.
