Rachelle 1, Table 0.

It was a tough fight, but I did come out victorious. Really I guess we both won, since the table doesn't have to be little boy blue anymore. Not that I have anything against that, but ya know.. House of girls here. ;)

Remember this beaut?

Right now it's on sale for 49.99 but it's regularly 59.99 and I got it at goodies for 29.99. Lovely. I knew right away it was getting a coat of paint. I went with the natural choice Heirloom white, I seriously don't think you can go wrong with that color! It's the best by far. Then I took a pretty little knob that was left over from our kitchen remodel and hello gorgeous! Well anyways enough deets, here's the goods.

Oooh!

Ahhh!

Wait.

No, that's not it either.

I love it! I realize that it's a bedside table but c'mon, when you're using a foot stool as a table-- anything is an upgrade! I think it looks much better now, perfect for our living room.

I should have gotten the other table that they had. Oh well-- live and learn! Did you see the other project that was from last year? I totally forgot about that little pretty!

So when do you think Mr. P will notice somethings different? He went all last weekend with the table in the basement in front of the laundry pile.. I mean, what laundry? Anyways he walked past it a million times and didn't notice. Men.

See you tomorrow with the other project!

Now go check out the other laides at The Shabby Nest for Frugal Friday!

Love it! I love the framed bat as well, very appropriate this time of year.

Maybe someday it WILL be beside a bed. You get to decide. Your home, your rules. Looks very very nice :)

Hope your Prince Charming is surprised! Mine would have noticed the laundry and the unfinsihed project and griped :)

Stopping over from The Shabby Nest. Great redo! I love using furniture in the "wrong" places. Bedside table? I think not! Looks fab!

Amazing what a little Heirloom White will do for ya! It looks great.

Sarah said...

it turned out SUPER lovely in heirloom white :) i, too, am seemingly incapable of buying something and leaving it as is - especially if there's a chance to spray paint something, i'm gonna do it!

Matt and Ashlee said...

I just love furniture makeovers!!! You did an excellent job!

Kristi @ Addicted 2 Decorating said...

That looks great! I just used heirloom white on a project I finished up yesterday (and posted on my blog today). I love it. It's not too bright white, but doesn't look yellow. I agree with you...you can't go wrong with this color.

Shanty 2 Chic said...
