{Side Tables}

Rachel and I bought these little guys off Craigslist a couple months ago and just tackled them today.

We kid that you should take a super crummy before picture so that the after picture looks even more amazing.  

Even still, this is an incredibly crummy before picture:

Oh my.  They needed our love, for sure!  Sanding, primer, wood filler...  Eek.
But seriously, check out how these transformed from ugly ducks to beautiful swans...

We moved them into my front room and...
Yup, those are the same tables!

Oh, I think Rachel and I both fell in love as soon as we started staging!

Aaaaaand, yet more pieces that I don't want to move out of our living room or sell.  Ha!

We lined the drawers with damask-print paper for a pretty finish.

And just because it all looks so good, I have to include another (and check out the coffee table we did this weekend!):
Love, love, love!

  1. I know we might be biased....but those looks so good!!! And those pillows are so fun - you might need to keep them there! By the way, I fell asleep at 8pm, up at 9pm and not back asleep until 2am!! Ugh...I'm exhausted!

  2. What a wonderful blog you have. I love your ombre 5 drawer dresser! Following you on GFC and I'd love for you to come visit my blog sometime. Have a great week!


  3. Super cute and fresh room! Love the refurbished end tables!

  4. they look fabulous and frame out your sofa perfectly! love the colors in the living room!

  5. Those tables are adorable and I think they need to stay put. They look really amazing where you have them! Love your decor as well and the new coffee table is cute stuff! I would love for you to come by and link this up on Thursday at my Creative Inspirations linky party - I would love to have you there!

  6. What a nice little space! I especially love the lamps that you've got -- those shades are awesome :)

  7. I love it! Y'all did a great job. Those are just the colors that I want to do in our master bedroom.

  8. Man I am so in love with these! The hardware is very unique and gives it that special touch, what a great transformation. I wouldn't want to sell these either! I would just love it if you could share these pretties at my cheap finds and transformations party, I know they will be popular amongst everyone! Here's the link if you're interested and I hope you enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

  9. You did a great job with this makeover. Love that you finished off the inside.
