A Little on the Side

In between working on some amazing large custom pieces, and a few new things to take down to NJ & Co. which I will be showing you soon, I also completed some cute little side pieces.  Love these because there is almost immediate gratification.  Admit it, sometimes you just need some immediate gratification!  I do at any rate.

Lately it has been difficult for me to find much of anything that resembles solid wood, but especially something that is solid and smallish.  I love side tables.  I crave side tables.  I need side tables for all the rooms of my house!  So here are 2 small side tables I finally found.  (There is a 3rd one I just realized that I failed to photograph before running it up to NJ & Co., pitiful.)
I call this one "Beachy".  The lines and style just reminded me of something a bit 'beach house', or in land locked Nebraska 'lake house'.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paints, Florence in a rough undercoat, and Duck Egg as a top coat.
I sanded back heavily to give it a very shabby/worn feel revealing both the undercoat and the wood.
How about some nice rope-look jewelry for Beachy?  Just what she needed.
Perfect size for a lamp table or nightstand.  If you love her you can find her at NJ & Co., Omaha.
Next up, is a small 2 drawer side table/night stand.

She has been painted in a fresh, soft Benjamin Moore green, the color name of which escapes me at the moment.  Love the 2 deep drawers worth of storage.  I am always on the lookout with side tables that have storage and can hide all the little day to day clutter.  She has been lightly distressed and waxed with both light and dark wax.
New "aged" looking hardware complete her look.  She's also waiting for a permanent home at NJ & Co.  Stop by and check her out.  Ladies Night Out is tomorrow from 5-8 p.m. with "Spirited" refreshments and discount offers.

On another note, we are getting close to finalizing our next Prairie Market sale, so keep stopping by to check on the side bar for that date!

Have a fabulous week!


  1. cute! i love the first one- the legs are sweet and love the colors!

  2. love these! and yes, I totally agree with the instant gratification!!!

  3. Love both of these - but the turquoise end table makes my heart sing! ( maybe because I'm dying for Spring to come - it keeps vanishing after a few days here in Montreal!
    Great job

  4. Pretty! I love little side tables too. And like everything else, good ones are getting hard to find! Yay for instant gratification!

  5. Oooohhhhh....that little "lake" table is something else. Adorable!

  6. Beachy is a GREAT name for it... :) Don't you love it how your brain just comes up with fabulous thoughts while you are painting.... ???
