So here goes…This weekend I did a little makeover on a night stand that we already owned. I’ve mentioned before that the beach house came furnished. I don’t know if I mentioned that a lot of the furniture is dated and can use a little love. Here is the guest room table before.
Blah. Boring. Beat up.
I just so happened to stumble upon another great sale at Ace. (They should probably sponsor this blog, don’t ya think?) There were tons of these little sample size paints for $1 each. I went to town!
I combined 2 of the reds to make my desired color. I was hoping to match the red in the bedroom quilt.
After lightly sanding the table, I painted on 2 coats of the custom mixed red.
After it dried, I applied paste wax to protect it and make it shiny.
Oh and I sprayed painted the original drawer pull antique white.
Here’s how it looks in the nautical themed guest room.
I think it goes well with the blue & red quilt. What do you think?
And that is what a $2 makeover looks like.
