Side Table Goes Provence

 

Do you love aqua as much as I do? Yes? You can be my new BFF.  No? That’s okay, I love you anyway:)

I really love aqua.  If it’s the right shade, I want it.  It could be a doggy bowl in just the right shade and I don’t own a dog…but I’m really liking the look of that bowl.  Of course it  would not come home with me…but you get my drift.

I have really been itching to paint a piece of furniture in my beloved favorite color and I found just the piece.

Customer Appreciation Day at the Salvation Army Thrift Store woot woot!

This was $59:

Side Table Before

I actually really like this as is. But alas, my almost full can of Annie Sloan chalk paint in “Provence” awaits.

It is in really great condition and I could kick myself for only purchasing one instead of the pair.  But $59 is still more than I really wanted to pay. (Because you know I’m cheap.)

 

And here she is:

Table in Annie Sloan Provence blue

 

Love… If I were a lamp, I would definitely have a crush on this table!

I kept the top as is because I just couldn’t bring myself to paint the whole piece. And the top is really pretty:

Love the metal detail on the feet too:

Love the knobs…(I stole these from another table)

Pretty glass knobs

 

I love this little bird I found at Kirklands. (Because it was the perfect shade…)

I also  love the picture of my babies in the background:)

I hope you love this too. And I hope you’re not too mad at me for painting a table that was is great condition to begin with:)

  1. It turned out lovely, although I don’t think I’d have the courage to paint it. The aqua color is so yummy.

  2. Wow! I love this table in aqua. It really is a beautiful piece and I love the glass knobs you added as well. I am addicted to aqua, and to chalk paint for that matter (but I haven’t had a chance to use Annie Sloan’s yet… only made my own). Love it! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Okay, I am kicking you for not buying both since this really turned out awesome! I did the same thing with a chair that I post just now on my blog. I only bought one! Sometimes we are not thinking straight!

  4. Great job! I love it!!! It looks amazing!

  9. Great color! I like that you left the top in its original condition. It has an interesting pattern on it and I’ve really been loving painted pieces with a stained wood top. You did a great job!

  10. I LOVE it…beautiful job!

  11. What a great transformation. I am visiting you via No Minimalist Here. I would love for you to stop by My Dream Canvas. I am hosting a Giveaway for my blog’s birthday. Please join in if you like it 🙂

  12. What a beautiful transformation – that color is gorgeous – and the wood on the top?
    You’re right – too pretty to paint!

  13. Wow, you did a fantastic job! I love this! And I’m so glad you kept the wood top. I love a painted dresser with a wood top. And the pattern on that is way too beautiful.

  14. Mmmm…love that little table! It’s beautiful! I really love aqua, too. I painted my laundry room a light shade. 🙂
    Daggonit…I could use a table just that size in my living room. Too bad I can’t go pick up the other one.

  15. The before was good but the after is way better!

  16. We’ve redone our whole kitchen in yellow and the provence Annie Sloan chalk paint. I love it!

  17. It does look so nice painted–and I have loved aqua for a long time too. I looked around your posts and you are so creative! I am now following by email. I found this post at Transformation Thursday by The Shabby Creek Cottage.

  18. Absolutely gorgeous! I love aqua too. Call me! (just kidding)

  19. I adore aqua too!! She is a classy piece, right down the the original top and glass nob- but the color is the true show stopper to this (IMHO)

    Craft On & dance like no one else is watching 🙂

  20. I love this piece. It looks great in it’s new shade. I am loving that color recently, too. I agree that the top should remain unpainted. It looks fabulous.

  21. Provence is my absolute favorite color! It looks gorgeous on your side table and the knobs are a perfect touch!

  22. Wow, that turned out great, Christy! What a great piece! I love how you left the top stained. I haven’t been to our Salvation Army in a few months. I really need to go. They always have a great selection of furniture {as opposed to Goodwill which has more home decor pieces}.

    • Thanks, Kathy! I agree…Good Will doesn’t usually have a great selection of furniture. Salvation Army almost always has something I want to tote home! Good thing my space is limited ha ha:)

  23. Your side table looks splendid in aqua!! Love!

    Thank you for partying with the Wildly Original Crowd.

  24. Beautiful colors! I love that you left the top dark. That piece has gorgeous lines! Thanks so much for linking this up to Monday Funday!

  25. Beautiful makeover, you did a fabulous job!

    I would be honored to have you stop by and share at my weekly link party.

  27. This is so pretty!!!!

  28. Beautiful!! I love Provence (and Aubusson Blue and Duck Egg Blue 😉 ) I’m an aqua, turquoise blue fan too. 🙂
    OH, and that top is gorgeous, I don’t blame you a bit for not painting that! What a great find.

  34. I love you table Christy! Perfect color and distressing! I will be featuring it on Throwback Thursday this week!

  35. Love the table, before and after. But with that cute bird on top, I prefer the after. Such a pretty shade of blue. Nice job and thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks, Christa! I’m used to painting old beat up pieces, so there is absolutely no guilt involved. This was beautiful as is, so leaving the top stained made it a bit easier to paint. It’s a pretty addtion to our room 🙂

  36. I love it. Good job and a great find!

  37. I can’t believe I haven’t found this on your blog as much as I’m on there! This is gorgeous…wow. I love the shape of it, the color and that handle is perfect! So pretty! Did this one go in your booth? If so I bet it sold fast!

    • Thanks, Heather! This is a couple of years old…and it’s actually in our bedroom. 🙂 I just saw that you started your blog…WOO HOO!! Awesome my friend!! When I started my blog I was totally obsessed with all things blog related as well. It’s a whole new world. 🙂
