before & after bedside table

Bedroom table after photos pleasure in simple things blog

Today, I am sharing the ‘after’ photos of the little mahogany side table I shared last post.  The piece belonged to the owner’s great grandmother and I was determined to redo the table to  fit nicely  into her new home.

I started with a coat of shellac since the mahogany was sure to show through a light color paint.  Next,  I painted the piece with two coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint in old ochre.  Then, I added a coat of clear wax.  In keeping with the tastes of the owner of the piece, I didn’t do any distressing, but I did add a coat of dark wax in some spots.  This accented some of the details and added a little depth  of color.

For the hardware, I used the original pull and just added a little metallic to brighten up the old finish.

Lastly, I added some fun accessories to coordinate with the bedroom where the little table will be residing.  The tea leaves scented candle, lamp, print, and plant all came from Target.  The cute succulent paper I used for the drawer liner came from Paper Source.

For such a straight forward paint job, it created quite an update, don’t you think?

Can’t wait to see the table with the new accessories in its new home!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Remember to take pleasure in simple things, Jackie
