This side table is the perfect size to fit in between two chairs in my living room. I've had it since I moved into my apartment 3 years ago...and I'm tired of the boring brown wood! I decided it was the perfect piece to spruce up and to practice my Chalk Paint technique. It was also small enough to be portable...yes...I took it (and all my supplies) with me to the Eastern Shore and started the process. The side table then took a staycation in Olde Town (Virginia) while I house sat and I finished it there.
I invite you to watch her transformation today and tomorrow!
|BEFORE: plain jane brown wood and a matching piece of hardware|
|View from the above: you can see her top is already slightly distressed|
|Still the first coat. I decided to make the drawer POP and painted the inside and sides "Louis Blue."|
Louis has a lavender tint to it--gorgeous.
