I have been so busy lately, a good kind of busy, I'm redoing my bedroom. I can blame all this hard work on the color of fabric I bought for the upholstered headboard that I'm doing. I got a pretty cream color that I knew would be good and neutral, you know, one that would go with any bed spread. Well when I held it against the bedroom wall, well it just blended in too much. So it started, the painting of the wall, new curtains, hopefully new pictures, when I find the right one's, etc. My hubby and I have had our bedroom set for most of our married life, nope, never a change. So I'm going to put my old furniture (which is still in excellent condition) in the spare room. Then I've been checking yard sales and Craigs list really close and found an older dresser that I really like and am in the process of painting it right now. I will be posting all of the pictures when it all comes together because it really is a huge change, and I'm loving it so far. For now I wanted to show you the cute end table that I found and refinished and will be putting it beside the sitting chair that I redid earlier this year (click here to see it.) I really like this little table and knew it would fit in with the idea that I have for my bedroom.
I had to glue the top in a couple of places that were starting to separate. Then I sanded the top down really good because I wanted to stain it. I didn't bother sanding the rest of it because I knew I would be using ASCP on it.
I wanted the top to be a really dark stain, almost black. I used Minwax dark walnut, and applied two coats of it, and I'm really happy with the color.
I then spray painted the pull with Rustoleum bronzed metal spray. I then used two coats of ASCP in old white on the rest of the end table. I then sanded it down to get that really smooth finish. It seems that when I use this paint no matter how good my brush is I always have brush strokes that need sanded down. Thank goodness it sands so easily. I love the look and feel of it after I sanded and distressed it a bit.
Won't it look pretty beside my chair in my newly refinished bedroom? I can't wait until it all comes together. Saturday should be the big day when I'm done with all the projects, here's hoping!
Doesn't it look pretty in it's new place?
I love it with my new curtains and reupholstered chair.
