Sweet Little Table Redo

This really is a sweet little table that I’m sharing today. It’s also another piece I acquired from Omi. You can read more about her and her pretty sewing box makeover here.

It was built by someone in her family many years ago.

Here is the before:


A diamond in the rough! I thought it would be the perfect little table for my downstairs bathroom.

This is the bathroom our visitors use. My husband retiled it from floor to ceiling before I came along.  Although it’s beautiful, it needed something to soften it a bit.

I think this did the trick!

I always get  the feeling that life is good when I’m sitting on the throne.

Did you notice that hydrangea goodness?


I just can’t get enough of them. They’ll be brown and crispy before you know it, so I have to take advantage of them as long as I can. The colors just get more amazing as the season progresses!



I usually like the vintage charm of older handles. This one was seriously lacking in the charm department. I filled in the old holes with wood putty and added this pretty glass knob.

Pretty glass knob always adds charm.

I lined the drawer with pretty liner I found at TJ Maxx. I used the same liner for the drawer in my harlequin side table I shared recently. I prefer not to paint the actual drawer to prevent the drawer from sticking. (I may or may not have learned this the hard way.)

Contrastin liner is  always a fun surprise. :)

The liner makes the drawer pretty without having to paint it.

Of course Brennan decides he really has to wash his hands…right now.

Come on in little buddy. Can I take your picture? Guess where I’m sitting?  ðŸ™‚


I love you, paint. Thanks for bringing so much joy to my life!

That’s my story, ya’ll. I’m always thrilled when you stop by! If you need to use the bathroom while you’re here it’s the first door on the left. Try not to drool on my hydrangeas. 🙂

  1. Ok, the table is adorable but your little guy totally stole the show! Too cute! 🙂

    • Thanks, Pam! He likes to follow me around, so he makes it into just about every other post! As for the no-reply blogger status…I’m told it’s a WordPress thing and I’m stuck with it. Sorry 🙁 Thanks so much for letting me know, though 🙂

  2. Sorry, I forgot I popped over to let you know you’re showing up as ‘no-reply’ 🙁

  3. Too cute! Nice call on the glass knob. I also love that little stool–I’ve been looking for something similar at thrift stores for a while now but so far no luck:(

    • Thanks,Eva! I couldn’t believe someone hadn’t snatched that little stool up…and I like it just the way it is which is a big deal cause I like to paint everything! Good luck in your search 🙂

  4. I may have learned that “do not paint the drawer” lesson the hard way too. Your little guy is so cute. It really made the post.

  5. haha drool on or over your hydrangeas – they sure are stunners. As is that awesome little table!! Love it!!

  6. Christy, what a darling makeover and can I tell you how much I LOVE the new handle on the table? You did a great job, as always! Thanks for sharing and pinning! Hope you have a wonderful and happy Wednesday!

  7. Hey! I have that same “Life is Good Sign” hanging above my front door! That is all. Bye!

  8. Christy, very nice change….lined drawers always add that extra somethin’ special!

  9. The table is SO cute and looks perfect in your throne room! And the hydrangeas…… need I say more?


  10. Very cute and it looks gorgeous in your little powder room. Love the little drawer liner too.

  11. Love the table makeover! Beautiful job! You take awesome pictures too!

  12. totally love your blog and the fact that you make your own paint. Love the color Cottage White….gonna go look for it now!

  13. The table looks great and I absolutely love that sign you have above the sink! I’m co-hosting the Creative Muster party this week and wanted to stop by and say thanks for linking up!

  14. It turned out gorgeous Christy!!!
    Perfect for that space – and love the glass knob………..
    Hoping you feel like a Queen more often than you sit on the throne LMHO

  15. Nice redo. I have a small nightstand that I’m working on. And the color you painted your table is one of the colors I’m thinking of. Great job, your table looks really nice. Thanks for sharing!

  16. I love the table! What a great job you did on it.

  17. Your powder room is beautiful!

  18. I love it, so perfect for the powder room. Thanks so much for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  19. First of all your little guy is so precious. I looked at his little arms with the dimples. They are so wonderful. Yeah I know I’m not his Mom but I had 2 boys 16 months apart and so wish I could do it again, be a better Mother.
    Love your little table, it is very sweet. Tables like yours are so versatile and very handy. That reminds me of a little table we have out in our shed, think it’s time it had some use. I feel bad for it being out there all this time.
    Love the paint job you gave her and the knob is gorgeous also. You could make her even more useful if you put a shelf on bottom rungs. Just saying, sorry. Happy days ahead.

    • Oh I never thought of adding a shelf! Super clever! I know what you mean about boys hitting a place in your heart. I have two boys, no girls…I think little boys are so sweet 🙂 Have a great day, JaneEllen! XO

  20. Lovely touch, Shame you didn’t keep the original drawer pull and sprayed it black, it would have picked out the tile detail of the floor, but the glass knob is pretty too 🙂
