Welcome, amazing Friends! Can you believe it’s the last day of May already?? Where did the month go? Today I’m sharing a petite side table I found at an estate sale TWO YEARS ago. I have no idea why I have resisted this makeover for so long, but it probably had a lot to do with the two words excellent and condition.
It’s so much harder to find motivation for a piece that really doesn’t need “fixing”:
Am I right?
I finally decided that I just needed to get it out of the garage, and went with a simple blue makeover:
This was not an old or valuable piece, and a pretty paint job gave it a sweet new look.
This is a 50/50 mix of Behr’s Gray Morning and Pure White made into DIY chalk Paint. I followed with a little sanding and a coat of Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax. You can find my tutorial for chalk painting furniture HERE.
I love this cool coastal blue.
The glass knob was one I found on clearance a while back.
I love it for this little table.
This piece also has a unique compartment that can be locked with a key:
Just in case you want to hide your chocolate stash from your kids.
I love the leg detail as well.
I pulled this out when my close friend was looking for a night table for her daughter. I thought she would think the locking compartment was cool, but this one worked better for her space.
I never tire of seeing how paint can give a whole new look to a piece of furniture…even when it looked pretty good before.
I’ll be back on Thursday with my Get Your DIY On crew sharing what I did with this:
Our theme this month is “Outdoor DIY Projects”.
See ya Thursday! 🙂
