Hello Friends!! Do you ever visit estate sales? I LOVE estate sales. My favorite is when I come across them unexpectedly while I’m already out and about. My Mom and I were out shopping one day last month when we came across one such sale. I found a few things…
I found this huge hand-built bookcase for $40:
I can’t wait to start on that! (Update: See it HERE now!)
I also found this pretty vanity bench for only $15:
(Update: See how that turned out HERE!)
And these breadboards for $9 for both:
Today I am sharing these sweet night tables I found for $30 each:
These weren’t super cheap like my 99¢ table, but a great deal for an estate sale, and I knew they would paint up so pretty.
I have included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use.
A couple of coats of “Fluff” white by Dixie Belle Paint brought out all those lovely curves:
This is the same color I used on my drum table that I shared last week. This paint gave perfect coverage in only two coats.
That’s pretty awesome! It usually takes three coats for solid coverage.
This is white, but not stark, bright white. It has a more vintage feel.
There are those thrift store hydrangeas again before I removed the white ones you saw on my little 99¢ table I shared on Tuesday.
The drawers on these night tables were very dirty on the sides and inside for some reason. I have a feeling these tables had been stored somewhere for a while with the drawers separate. That’s the only thing that makes sense, so I decided to paint the entire drawers:
I used this classic black and white toile that came from my Mom’s fabric stash to line the bottoms of each drawer:
I kept the original hardware, but I removed them before painting them in the Fluff color.
I lightly sanded the raised edges with 220 grit sandpaper to distress them just a bit. I don’t love a super chippy or dirty looking shabby piece, I prefer a subtle shabby that looks a little time-worn, but clean.
And that’s it! These two pretties have already made their way to my booth. 🙂
I’ll be back on Sunday, sharing our final favorites round-up from our last Get Your DIY On party, then I’ll see ya’ll on Tuesday, sharing this ginormous mirror I redid and the secret weapon that made painting all those nooks and crannies so much easier!
UPDATE: Check out how this ginormous mirror looks now HERE!
