Here's the before picture in case you forgot what they looked like:
I love the lines of this piece and it has sentiment in our family. It was my great aunt Syb's before she passed away. It was tired, though, with water rings on top, two different wood stains as well as two ear flaps that extended the table top but also made it look terrible. Here's what a little sander and a $7 can of paint did:
Isn't it sweet?! It's the perfect shade of butter yellow and it's my one BIG pop of color in this room. This picture makes these side tables seem like they are going to overwhelm the space with yellow, yellow, yellow, but never fear. All of the neutrals coming in will quiet it right down. My next project is also a paint job. I plan to tackle the two dressers next. Wish me luck and stay tuned to the blog for more updates!
