Bedside Table Revamp….

Well ever since the desk revamp/debarkle, depending on how you want to look at it (though I now am happy with the way the desk turned out) I’ve been a bit off fixing anything else around the house but lately the creative juices have been flowing and I’ve found a project that should (in theory) be easy enough to revamp and keep me busy for a few hours over the weekend. Chris and I don’t have matching bedside tables and that used to bother me but I’ve gotten used to what we do have because it works for us and also it just makes our room a little more unique than the standard matching bedsides everyone else has. As most of you know I have my Grandfathers cabinet he made with his own hands.

My bedside table soon to be white washed.

Chris has an old telephone table with seat that I picked up in an op shop for about $5 many years ago now. The idea has always been to recover the seat and I originally intended on staining the wood to bring it back to life but being as I’ve been making the move to beach/coastal/french decor I’ve decided to white wash instead. I got some gorgeous french fabric off ebay this week and that will cover the seat, I’m on the hunt for a new handle for the draw and I already have some paint laying around from some older projects so I really just need to invest in a new paint brush and I can start.
Chris’ beside table, a slight coastal theme so far with the shells in the jar. He made me promise I wouldn’t ‘jazz’ up his side too much. The fabric will do most of the jazzing up for me any way.

So with the weekend fast approaching I’m looking forward to getting started on this revamp as I need something to take my mind off moving and looking at houses….it’s becoming a nightmare I can do without. So have a lovely day for what’s left of it and I’ll put pics up on the weekend when the revamp is complete…

    There's a large range of options on offer, from clean-lined, modern designs in glass, perspex, polyurethane, metals and mirrors to ornate antique styles and the elegance of timber in all its forms – solid timber, timber veneer, rustic recycled pieces and designs that are painted or lacquered.

    Cool Michelle. Can't wait to see the finished products! Oh and un-matching bedsides are way cooler than matching ones ;)Michelle, I owe you a huge apology…I have been replying to your comments over at my blog via email, but I've just realised that yours is a no-reply address, so all my responses have been lost somewhere in the 'void' so to speak. So, I just want to let you know that I am dreadfully sorry and I really value the time you take to read and comment on my blog. In future I will respond directly beneath your comments. Take care.Cas x

    Hi, i noticed your comment over on Beach Cottage and thought i would pop over to your blog for a look. I love old telephone tables, reminds me of my Great Grandmother's home. Have fun with your projects.

    Yeah I had another look at Chris' table and it will need a light sanding as it still has some sheen from varnish so I need to remove that first…….I'm hoping the seat isn't going to be to tricky to remove as it's not screwed in……here's hoping all goes well and I don't turn into my dad hehe…xo
