44 Easy Side Table Makeover Ideas

Do you have a side table that needs some love? Here are some great side table makeover ideas to inspire you!

Ever stared at that side table in your living room and thought, “You know, you could really use a glow-up”?

Well, you’re not alone! I’ve been there, staring down my own tired pieces of furniture, dreaming of the potential beneath that chipped veneer and those coffee ring stains.

Side tables, in particular, are like the unsung heroes of our homes—holding our coffee cups, supporting our favorite books, and, let’s be honest, a fair share of clutter.

The beauty of upcycling a side table is that the possibilities are as vast as your imagination.

From a simple paint job to adding new hardware or applying decoupage, each project is a chance to inject a bit of your personality and personalization into your space.

And the best part? You get to save furniture from ending up in a landfill and (usually) save money in the process.

A fresh coat of paint can transform a sad side table into a vibrant statement piece. Whether you’re into bold colors that pop or prefer a more subdued look, paint is your best friend here.

Hardware is another game-changer. Swapping out old knobs for something a bit more modern or quirky can instantly elevate the look of your side table. Feeling a bit more adventurous, why not add a shelf or two?
