Ive been working on a slightly frustrating piece of furniture lately and so was losing motivation fast....I decided that now was the perfect time to strip this sidetable for a quickie make-over that I knew wouldnt take forever, be pretty straight forward and hopefully keep me motivated. The shrieks from my family when they saw me slather my enviromentally friendly paint stripper all over this one was something that had me second guess and slightly panic but really, if I hated the outcome, I can easily re-do the abstract painting on top and do a Jedi mind trick on everyone to forget. "You didnt see the paint stripper" "You love putting your laundry away"..........Wha?! O! Like you wouldnt?!
In anycase, Im crazy about natural wood lately. Ive been stripping everything down to its bare unmentionables and staining all sorta of shades. I just love the natural look of a really great piece of wood..For this baby, I wanted a natural, soft, warm look for her make-over reveal.
I replaced the metal handles with stained, wooden ones that I had taken off of the curio cabinet and I thought were just perfect for this.
I'm super stoked with her re-do..much more appropriate I think..classy and clean and natural and soft.
She turned out perfectly.
