lady in red

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.
