I have had this table that I picked up at a garage sale for awhile now, knowing that I could do something with it. I mean, don’t you always have a place for a cute little side table, somewhere in your house? Well, I do anyway. Or at least I can find a place for one…
Here is a quick before/after:
I debated about the color and whether I should add some sort of embellishment. A stencil maybe? Once I decided I was going to put it in my son’s room, the decision got a little easier. And when I came across some fun, navy blue gloss spray paint, it sealed the deal.
My oldest son’s room is in the basement, and since he is on the verge of becoming a teen, I have spared you his room (and will continue to do so for the moment). Pre-teen mess aside, his room is a funky shape, making it a bit of a design challenge.
To orient you a bit, his room is off the media room area of the basement from the tour I gave awhile back:
There are double-doors to his room, similar to the ones that lead to my office on the other side of the room. As a result, there isn’t a lot of room for a decent bedside table in his room, so this table definitely fit the bill!
It works perfectly in his room when I
shoved the mess aside put it lengthwise next to his bed.
As for the design – it was simple, really. First, I spraypainted the top of the table in a glossy white. Then I taped off the square with painters tape and sprayed the entire table in the glossy navy.
It just gives it that little bit of added interest, don’t you think?
