Hi all. I'm excited to bring you my first ever curbside makeover. Well, there was that coffee table. But that wasn't mine. I first showed you this end table in this post. Here's a little refresher:
It is a pretty solid piece. The drawer is dove tailed an the only thing majorly wrong with it (besides the dated yellow finish) was the peeling veneer on the top.
I peeled off the remaining veneer using the hot iron and towel method. I used wood filler to fill the bigger gouges. Then I used spackle to go over the entire area to even it out. I let that dry, sanded it, did another layer and then sanded it again. I used fine grit to ensure a smooth surface. I also used this time to fill in a few other minor scrapes. I usually don't do this, but I didn't want to distress this piece so it was necessary.
Inspired by Cassie's nightstands (over at Primitive & Proper) to break outside of my color comfort zone, I picked out a deep purple. I wasn't quite ready to go too bright haha.
The color is Kalamata Olive by Behr.
The knob is from Anthro on sale. Yellow and purple are compliments so it made sense. I think it's fun. I could always change it to something more subdued if the mood strikes me.
I think this one will be coming with me to the new apartment...
...which I move into in like a week and a half. Crazy! So if we're a little light on posts it's because we're in a transitional period! But don't worry, we'll have lots to blog about once we're settled in!
How do you feel about the purple? Love it or hate it?
