Hi Friends! Now that my ceiling is finally finished (whew!), I’m enjoying getting back to redoing a few pieces.
Today I’m sharing a sweet dressing table that I picked up at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago.
Have a look:
Ooh nice. No it really wasn’t was it? I ended up paying $25 for it, and figured surely I could do something with it.
A little French Linen chalk paint by Annie Sloan makes everything better…
See how it makes everything better?
I picked the chair up on this lucky day when I was playing hooky from my Mom’s bedroom set makeover and stopped by a few of my favorite thrift stores:
Can you find it in there?
I really only picked it up because it was $4.98 and I figured I could use the spindles for something. It was very petite…which was the perfect size for this petite dressing table!
Funny how that worked out. It now looks like a perfectly matched set.
I decided to paint just the top of the table and the seat of the chair in the French Linen…
And I’m not missing the sponge painted stars at all…
I found these beauties at HomeGoods:
I sanded where the stars were so the texture wouldn’t show through after painting.
Have you ever sponge painted anything? My old roommate and I sponge painted our bathroom twenty years ago and we thought it was gorgeous!
The inside of this table had yellowed a bit with age:
…but a couple of coats of white spray paint took care of that.
Good as new! I usually line the inside of drawers and such when I make over a piece, but I figured this will probably get all gunked up with makeup, and this plain painted surface will be easier to clean.
And how about the rest of the inside?
I spotted this mirror at a thrift store for $4! The original was broken off and was rectangular, but this one worked out perfectly. I attached it with mirror adhesive and added the silver flowery doodads for a little extra support.
I’m always drawn to the flower aisle at HomeGoods…
This little starry-sponge-painted dressing table…
Just got a little more sophisticated…
This would work perfectly in a coastal-inspired bedroom, a shabby chic bedroom, or anything in between!
Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂
