Revamp Success…..

Well I have to say I love white washing furniture!! Revamping Chris’ bedside table took me a little longer than I planned as I left Sunday afternoon open so we could take the girls out for ice cream and a swim at the beach. Once they were in bed though I got started on the first coat of paint (I did all the sanding Saturday afternoon) which I have to admit as I started the white washing process I was a little apprehensive and thinking to myself, ‘hmmm not sure if I’m going to like this after all..’ but as I persisted and kept going it just kept getting better. So now I have a real love of white washing and I can’t wait to get started on my bedside table and revamp that too…

Saturday afternoon, completely sanded and waiting to be painted.
Sunday evening, first coat on. I decided to wait until today to do the second coat as the light inside wasn’t too great after a certain point.
This morning with the second coat applied….just sitting around drying.
Front view and completely finished…yey!!
Top view and I love this fabric….
Back home on Chris’ side of the bed..
Looking oh so French and Coastal…
Ahh I’m so in love with this piece of furniture now….
Ok so I know this is a lot of photos for one bedside table but I’m just so happy with the way it turned out that I think the rest of the house better watch out because you never know when I’ll be by with a paint brush…
So what do you all think….do you love white wash as much as I do??
