New Bed Side Tables



Do you like my new/restyled bedside tables?

 I have had these bedside tables sitting in the garage for about a year. They were given to my by a dear friend. So I finally decided to pull them out and see what I could do with them.  This is how they originally looked ...


I really wanted to do them two tone, so I used my NEW Oziton Random Orbital Sander (which I love) to sand back the varnish and stain on the top of each of them.

Then I mixed up some white chalk paint and painted the rest of the cabinets and drawers in two coats.

After a light sanding I applied a clear coat of varnish to the cabinets, including the top. After it dried I  applied a final coat of varnish on top to protect it. 

I sanded back a lot of the blackness on the handles and they came up with a silvery tone instead. 

Here is a photo of the finished one next to the one I had yet to start.  Such a big difference. 


I love the way the top and handles came up. 


I love them! I love them so much I have swapped out the ones in our bedroom.   These were the old ones ...


There was only one tiny drawer and a basket underneath for general storage. 

And the new ones ...





I thought they might be a bit big, but given we have such a small room and limited storage, I think they are quite functional. 





Notice anything about the wall? Yep, it's been repainted Dulux Natural White to match in with the rest of the house.

  4. Thanks Janine! I love our bed too! You could say it was love at first sight. :) But the top bed head was totally uncomfortable so I made the fabric insert and now it is perfect. Thanks for your lovely comment. x J
