I’m not sure what this piece of furniture started out as, but it is a perfect bedside table now! I purchased it a few years ago and had been using it as a bedside table in the guest room. When I finished a piece of furniture that was a better fit for the space I moved this piece out and it waited around for its turn to be updated. This is the way it looked when I bought it…spray painted white and lightly distressed…
All of the pretty details and unique legs drew me to this piece… again not sure what it used to be… but recently I saw something that made me think it may have been an old sewing table…
The same client who had me paint the Green with Envy desk wanted this piece for a bedside table in the same room… so out came the custom green mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and CeCe Caldwell’s clay and chalk paint… so pretty!
It is so much prettier now painted green! I also waxed and buffed it after I lightly distressed it.
Look at all the pretty detail that a new (and better) paint job shows off…
Several layers of tops?…
Love this little finial below!
I just can’t get enough of these legs…
Here it is again… any ideas as to what it might have been originally? What do you think about the sewing cabinet idea?
My client sent me a picture of this setup next to her daughter’s bed and it is sooo perfect for the space! She is using the cabinet area to store books… couldn’t be a better use for this! Her daughter is so proud of her new furniture that she is doing a great job of keeping her books neatly put away now… a nice bonus for Mom don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest update! I’m done with the green paint for now and I have a couple of great coral chalk paint projects almost wrapped up and ready to share!
Until next time…
Linking up to these great parties!

Whatever it was, it’s gorgeous now – beautiful job!
Wouldn’t it be fabulous with a fish tank fitted into it.
Yes! Will have to keep that in mind if I run across anther one!
Love the color mix you created, Susan. The table is lovely and fresh! A sewing table was the first thing that popped in my mind, but the opening threw me off. Plus for a sewing table the top would have to open. I love the curves and details, so cute. I hope you’ll stop by and share it at Frugal Treasures Tuesday party! Have a good week.
Thanks Barbe! It looks like a new top was added to the piece and the front looks like something was cut from it… Hmm..
love the way all the detail show up with the green and it is such a fresh pretty color…great shop…
I love this table itselt. It is beautiful!! The color is fantastic. Another great job.
This is so great! I love the details and it looks gorgeous in green. Great job!
Now thats a statement piece! Thanx for joining THT.
Love the color you painted this very cute piece. Perfect for books! I agree that the details show up so much better in green.
i love that shade of green. It looks so fresh and happy now! Great job!
fun color!! I love lime green.
I think it may have been a radio cabinet.
I love grey but sometimes it just makes a piece look tired. The green wakes up all those delicious details. Well done!
What a fantastic little table! I love all the details and you chose a gorgeous color.
It’s a phone table. The phone books would go into the space and the phone would sit on the top!
