Well…I think I’m at the “dog with a bone” phase of my guest bedroom makeover. I can’t let it go. I can’t take a break. Even though I have a bazillion things going on in my life right now, I’m on a mission to get this room done. I’m excited, energized and I hope it turns out like the vision in my head.
I am determined to spend less than $50 on this makeover – which means I have to use items I already have in my house or Jennifer’s. So far, so good but I’m still a long way from being done. I’ve made a to-do list that I am slowly but surely checking off.
Which brings me to today’s post. In the guest room I needed a different side table. I got this table last year from an antique dealer friend for a great price. The garden gate doors were off and it looked like it had a few too many coats of paint. I counted five different colors.
I decided to be lazy with this particular piece of furniture. It’s not for a client so I opted to not sand down the drips and paint bubbles. In my opinion, these things add character to the piece. I had a clear vision of what I wanted the colors to be. If you saw the bedroom curtains yesterday in our DIY Curtain Rod post, then you already know the colors I chose
The hardest part of this project was reattaching the door fronts back onto the hinges. I could not have done it without Jennifer coming to the rescue It was definitely a two-girl-job!
I know that this is a terrible picture! I had already loaded paint onto my brush when I realized I hadn’t taken a photo with the doors attached. I wanted y’all to see the different colors. I grabbed my iPhone and took this pic…
I wanted to clean up the interior too. I painted it Napoleonic Blue by Annie Sloan. This too was leftover paint from this project. I absolutely love it! I may not shut the doors ever again
So…I still have a big to-do list for the guest bedroom makeover, but this is one thing that I can say is complete! Next week I will share with you the table for the other side of the bed!
