Entry Table Makeover

I was recently given this cool sofa table. It was the perfect size table to put at the bottom of our steps. Even before I brought it home, I knew I would paint it. After much consideration I decided to give it an extra touch to give it a more modern feel. Here is the before.

I took the doors off and filled the holes from the hinges with wood putty. Then I used a medium grit sanding block and sanded the entire thing except for the top. The top had some pretty deep scratches so I used an electric sander to smooth out the top. Next I painted two coats of dark grey paint. I was so excited when I found these baskets in my craft room. They fit perfect! Here is the after. What do you think? The cups are compliments of my mother-in-law, a ceramic artist. Aren't they beautiful? I love the color of the glaze!
