Bedside tables found on the side of the road

These were lying by the side of the road, waiting for some lucky soul.

Totally blah bedside tables found on the side of the road

After convincing my husband that while it looked too good to be thrown out, it was brought into my house. I had great plans for it. They were covered in YUCKY milk paint and took me three days to strip it for painting.

I chose Napoli from Bristol Paints: a beautiful rich turquoise teal colour in high gloss. Painting in Melbourne right now isn’t a real smart idea given it is cold and a little wet, but I couldn’t wait.

A week later and after second coat, I started on the drawers. Also found some cool black and white drawer knobs from Provincial Home Living for $2.95 each.

After another three days of leaving it out to dry, this is the result:
