Today I went shopping and picked out the paint for my NEW bedroom set. The headboard and 9 drawer dresser will be ivory with a beautiful glaze (these will be blogged at a later date).
The dilemma is the side tables. I saw these bad boys on kijiji and for $5.00 each I couldn't resist. Unfortunately I had my parents pick them up because the lady lived in their neighbourhood and well when I saw them I realized they were not all wood. The top and side panels are melamine. YIKES!! Now I love the detail on the doors and know that they will look so good painted and glazed (as seen on All Things Thrifty) and I will not give up on these babies so......I sanded them down. You can see the difference on the doors ( the lower one has been sanded). Look at that detail...POP!
So imagine ivory bed and dresser. My bedspread is a light grayish blue and the curtains are a pewter colour. I wanted to do something a little unexpected with these side tables, but I'm stuck on the colour. I've narrowed it down to two colours (Walmart was a little limited with colours and I refuse (maybe) to go to Michael's and pay 3x the amount for a larger colour selection). The choices are Hyacinth (satin finish) or silver (brilliant finish). I tried to find gloss finish, but I couldn't find it in any good colours. I just don't know which way to go. The Hyacinth is a grayish purple and the silver would look very metallic like these other side tables.
Felt like I needed to show a little love for the Hyacinth so here is another table/stool?
