It’s Table-Palooza Time here at All Things New Again!
You may be wondering: What the heck is Table-Palooza?
It is our month-long celebration of All. Things. TABLES!
(Just in time for Back to School. Small tables are perfect additions to dorm rooms or apartments. They add personality and functionality to your space … and can fit right in the backseat of your car for a hassle-free move-in.)
We love little tables around here. They are small enough so you can probably find a space for one—even in fully furnished rooms. They are inexpensive so you can add a little table without the long-term commitment of, say, a new sofa. And they are just a fun way to add a splash of color without overpowering a room.
Here are a few of the pretty painted tables we recently created. All are available for sale at our shop, All Things New Again in Leesburg, Virginia.
(Sorry! Since this blog post was published, all of these tables are SOLD.)
We do custom painting and are happy to provide you a quote if you have a table or other piece of furniture you would like painted.

Here are some tables created with another one of our favorite products—Unicorn Spit non-toxic rainbow gel stain and glaze. We also carry Unicorn Spit at the shop and we are one of the only stores in the country to offer an Introduction to Unicorn Spit class.
Unicorn Spit is a fun name and a fun product to work with. You never really know exactly how your design will turn out … but it always looks AMAZING!
Look at this one-of-a-kind design on the top of this bedside or end table. That’s Unicorn Spit!
Unicorn Spit doesn’t have to be crazy-colorful. We used it here to create a faux stained-glass effect on the center inserts of these sophisticated side tables.
Here’s one more elegant black table … but this one has a twist.
The tabletop was created with a product that isn’t available to the general public yet. Shimmer Spit is a new product from the makers of Unicorn Spit. With Shimmer Spit, you can still stain wood so the grain shows through, but the finish has a soft glittery shimmer to it.
UPDATE: Shimmer Spit is now a thing! (And it is AMAZING!) We have Shimmering Unicorn Spit for sale right here in our online store.
Cathy and Dave found the little table on one of their crazy cross-country treasure hunting adventures. They also found a stash of antique hand drills and attached one as a unique handle for this table. What a perfect combination! The table is painted with Real Milk Paint Company’s Navy Blue and the flowers are paper napkins decoupaged. This table is small enough for the corner of your kitchen to hold a pretty vase of flowers or bowl of fruit.
Here’s our final table we are featuring today. This is a vintage drum table given an elegant new look. The tabletop wasn’t pretty enough to sand down and stain so we painted and glazed it for a contemporary stained-wood look instead.
