Well ever since the desk revamp/debarkle, depending on how you want to look at it (though I now am happy with the way the desk turned out) I’ve been a bit off fixing anything else around the house but lately the creative juices have been flowing and I’ve found a project that should (in theory) be easy enough to revamp and keep me busy for a few hours over the weekend. Chris and I don’t have matching bedside tables and that used to bother me but I’ve gotten used to what we do have because it works for us and also it just makes our room a little more unique than the standard matching bedsides everyone else has. As most of you know I have my Grandfathers cabinet he made with his own hands.

My bedside table soon to be white washed.

Chris has an old telephone table with seat that I picked up in an op shop for about $5 many years ago now. The idea has always been to recover the seat and I originally intended on staining the wood to bring it back to life but being as I’ve been making the move to beach/coastal/french decor I’ve decided to white wash instead. I got some gorgeous french fabric off ebay this week and that will cover the seat, I’m on the hunt for a new handle for the draw and I already have some paint laying around from some older projects so I really just need to invest in a new paint brush and I can start.
Chris’ beside table, a slight coastal theme so far with the shells in the jar. He made me promise I wouldn’t ‘jazz’ up his side too much. The fabric will do most of the jazzing up for me any way.

So with the weekend fast approaching I’m looking forward to getting started on this revamp as I need something to take my mind off moving and looking at houses….it’s becoming a nightmare I can do without. So have a lovely day for what’s left of it and I’ll put pics up on the weekend when the revamp is complete…
