A sweet little beside table

I have actually had this project done for two weeks and I am just getting around to posting about it.  I found  two dark side tables on craigslist a few months ago. They were pretty solid but also had some damage to the top. This is what they looked like before the new coat of paint. As usual I remembered to photograph them after I had started priming!
Now here it is after first coat of paint. Don't you love the pull out tray?

And finally here it is at home in my bedroom. I got some new hardware at Lowes to spruce it up even more!
Oh I almost forgot to tell you how much I love the vine detail across the top. I am debating about getting a black paint pen to fill it in. What do you guys think? Should I leave it as is or paint it?

Happy Mothers Day to everyone ! Thanks for your input.


  1. Girl, LOVE this! Such a transformation...I think filling in the vine would be a great idea...would add some contrast to your your piece.

  2. Looks great! They came out so cute. Exactly what I need for my room.

  3. Great redo! Craigslist rocks.
    I was looking for a matching pair of end tables for a while and couldnt find any anywhere! You could try the black paint pen, and if you dont like it, paint over it with white! Great project!!!

  4. Thanks for all the nice comments! So far it looks like I am going to try to use the paint pen. Emily is tight I can just paint it over if need be!
