Preppy Striped in Three Shades of Green

I am feeling the need to be
super ( more than normal )creative lately!  
I found this disgusting little mid century table 
the other day  and decided to make it my 
newest victim. 

shame, shame, shame...

So, I sanded, primed and painted fun stripes
on this little one.  
Lovin me some green frog tape!

This delicious color reminds me of the popular cake icing of the 1980's...totally edible!

This table would be perfect in a teen's room or even a baby nursery, or for someone who likes all
things unique and fun. 

Enjoy your weekend:)

Emerald Green and Glam Goodness

From a new little local thrift store~
Not lovin it, friends. Needs some love.
Now...YES, for sure!
Have a look...

Oh my green goodness! This may need 
to stay with me...really. The bold color paired with the 
gloss finish and intricate detail of this 
piece makes it a real show stopper. 
How would you like to see this daily as you walk through your entry?
I think this would be perfect for an entryway table, side / accent table, small dining buffet for serving ware or linens, or even perfect for a small flat screen in your home office or bedroom.

This mini credenza can be purchased 

thank you;)

Falling Hard for Sapphire Blue

I have just as much fun styling a piece of furniture as I do actually painting it.  So...I have again, styled this accent table 3 different ways.  Let me now which 
one you prefer;) just cause I'm curious.
Matching dresser will be done soon and 
I will style that 3 ways, too!
Below is the booooring "before" picture.

After some more sanding, priming and painting, this Mid Century Modern side table turned out pretty great!

"Vintage Modern"

"Traditional Modern"

"Coastal Modern"

Now it's time to work on the coordinating dresser!

Got Gloss?

I have sanded, primed and painted this beautifully shaped round table in a bright glossy white. I kept the original hardware on the table...
I LOVE the contrast of the old vs new.

Use beside your bed as a lamp table or in your living room next to your sofa or favorite comfy chair. I think this would look great next to a platform rustic bed, contrast is key to great design.

As usual, this table is ready to be purchased
