The Little Green Side Table With Personality


This is the little side table that most people would pass up, but I know you see the potential!


Oh, look at the cute features before..... The scalloped edges, the shelves and drawer.  Most people would see an old scratched up side table.


I had to sand and use Zinsser primer so the stain would not bleed through 


I used Heirloom white paint and a green clearance paint from Hobby Lobby

And finished off the drawer with a Laura Ashley wallpaper


I switched up the knobs, I'll save the original knobs for another project


I sanded the edges to shabby it up a little and put it in my booth at Orange Tree for $45





I loves it!... And I love you guy's, thank you for always taking the time to leave a kind word

Happy Creating!

I love it! Green is my favorite color with pink being a close second. The scalloped trim and the surprise lining inside the drawer makes this one darling piece! Thanks for continuing to share your talent with us.

Great photos to show the before and after. What a wonderful eye you have in seeing the potential of this piece . Plus the willingness to do the work. Accented beautifully with the wallpaper is the porcelain cat & the crocheted doily and tea cup.
Just lovely!

Sue@Uniquely Chic said...

I would've scooped that one up in a heartbeat! Love how you shabbied it up.

Debbie said...

I loves it too!

I think just about everything looks pretty with a coat of heirloom white. I can't find it in this town any more so my husband buys cans at a time for me on the road.

I love the choice of knob for this one, too.

Jan said...

The table is adorable after you redid it. Great job. I can't believe you priced it so low. If I were lucky enough to go to your shop I would buy it. Some lucky person will come in soon and take it home and love it. Great job.

Tracy said...

Very, very cute! You brought out all it's personality!

Debbie said...

I'm back just to say that the case of paint was oil rubbed bronze. I had thought about a call to Mr. Rustoleum Man to lament my Heirloom White-less town but figure lightning doesn't strike in the same area twice. LOL

Hobby Lobby isn't carrying Rustoleum at all any more. Pouting about that one.

Diane said...

SOMEONE is going to be very, very lucky to purchase THIS!!!!!

Hugs, Diane

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Well Ms. Polka Dot Closet...if that cutie hasn't sold already I know it will in a few days. I love it. It's just dripping with cottage charm with those cute legs and the scallop detail. I finally sold some pieces of furniture that had been in my booth for awhile. Now I can bring in some more. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. xoxo
