How to Make Your Bedside Tables Beautiful With Paint


I am excited to be writing this post and show you how I made these bedside tables beautiful with some awesome paint from Vintage Market.

Vintage Market supplied the paint for this project in exchange for this post but all of the opinions are 100% my own.  You can read my full disclosure here.

Beautiful Bedside Tables

Jeff and I have decided that we are going to turn my previous craft room into a second guest room.  It seems the boys are usually home at the same time and it becomes problematic with only one guest room.  I had these tables in the garage and thought they would make perfect bedside tables in the new room.

This is how they started out.

They are a little different and quirky which I love about them.  Plus I thought they would be perfect as charging stations.  I think it is important for guest to be able to charge all of their phones and devices as needed.

But before all of that could happen these guys needed to have an over-haul.  I started by cleaning them up and removing the hardware.

Then I gave one coat of Vintage Market Twig paint.  This paint covered so nicely and was a dream to work with.

Conch is the name of the second coat.  It is a beautiful cream color.  I decided to leave the inside of the table with the Twig color.  I loved the variety of color and I thought it would be a fun surprise when opening the top.

Adding The Stencil

After the paint was completely dry I added the stencil to the top of the table.  I placed the top back on but it was not attached.  I just wanted to get the entire top stenciled all together as one piece.

When I make cards and am stamping a background on the paper I start in the middle and work my way out to make it even and balanced.  I approached the stenciling in the same way.  This is the last part of the process.

The color for the stenciling was Espresso, also from Vintage Market.  Jeff even commented on how nice the color was.  I love the way it turned out.

When it was dry I did a little distressing and dry brushed a little bit of the espresso onto different parts of the table.  After that came the clear coat.  I put on one coat for a nice finish and to help protect the finish.




 

 

I reattached and Jeff helped me put the electrical outlets inside.

They are in the new guest room but I have not done any other decorating in there yet.  Updates on the room will be posted as I get things done.  Hopefully by Thanksgiving it will be at least 95% done.

What do you think?  I love them and I need to get busy on the rest of the room.

    Lovely nightstands, Michelle. I’ve never used stencils before, but you have surely inspired me to give it a try. Your colors are so beautiful, too. I do believe your guests are going to be thrilled to stay in this lovely room. Congrats on another great makeover. XOXO Susie from Chelsea Project

      Thanks Susie! I loved this stencil. Not a single bit of paint got underneath it and it came out perfectly the first time. I loved it.

      Thank you Anj! I really love they way they turned out and we needed guest room tables so I was super glad that I had these guys laying around. Thanks for stopping by.

    I’m ready to hire you for decorating services! These are fabulous, and I love the stenciling! I think the Conch color would have been a good choice for my kitchen cabinets!

      Thank you Peggy! The Conch would be nice in your kitchen but I love the color you chose. They are very similar and you did an awesome job on them.
