80′s Green Side Table Get’s a Swoon-Worthy Makeover

“I’m sure many of you remember when hunter green was THE  color in home decor back in the ’80s,” says Jeanie of Create & Babble.  “This old table has been my bedside table forever. I don’t know what took me so long to paint it!”Create & Babble side table before

Not only was the color dated, but Jeanie’s bedside table showed some wear and tear, especially on the tabletop.  She mixed her own chalk paint, using some latex paint leftover from other projects.  The top and drawer front were painted with Benjamin Moore’s Barely Teal.  After distressing the table for a comfortably worn finish, Jeanie added some new knobs that she already had on hand.  It’s hard to tell this lovely table originated in the ’80′s!Create & Babble side table after

    Gorgeous! I love the distressed finish.

  2. I don’t know why we ever hesitate to paint over wood. Especially unlovely wood! What a fantastic improvement!
