My mom found this ugly side table at a thrift store years ago. We have hauled it from house to house with no idea what to do with it. I just couldn't throw it away though. I knew it had potential, just not sure how much lol. Don't judge my dead lawn... just another thing on the LONG to do list at our house. I promise next summer it will be green, but today that is what it is.
So I took it out, dusted it off... it had collected A LOT of dust... sanded it down and got to painting.
I chose this heirloom white which I LOVE. It is so much softer then a bright white.
After I painted it, I really liked it but it just seemed so plain. I wanted to add a subtle touch, so I got out my bright white paint and free hand painted this cursive L on the top.
I love how the two whites look together and that the L isn't very obvious.
Notice the unfinished wood floors:) Anyway, here she is in all her glory. Well, I proudly marched her upstairs to put in Luci's room. Then I realized it was WAY to big for the room. LOL. So now we have a beautiful side table for our basement. Oh well, I tried. What's the old saying... "Measure twice, cut once." I guess that applies to furniture placement as well. Lesson learned. Still love the table though:)
