Baby it’s COLD and SNOWY and ICY outside!
Last I checked I was living on the Virginia coast? Two snowfalls in two weeks. The good: the school snow days off has allowed me to work on a room that desperately needs updating. The bad: we’ll have to make up these days. 😦
This room begs for updated lighting, bedside tables, new scatter rugs, bedding and window treatments.
The first task, finding the right bedside table, proved a little harder than I thought.
But, finally after months searching I figured out what it was that I wanted. I want a combination of Ana White’s farm table plan . . . a green side table I saw on a Pinterest board . . .
. . . and a table I coveted during a visit to Anderson-Wright Rooms & Garden.
Saw Man helped me construct a “farm table-rustic table-wash table” bedside table:
Honestly? The hardest part was making a final design decision. Using scrap pine pieces I already had and $35 USD worth of new pieces; this project took 2.5 hours to complete. It wasn’t hard, but it was nice to have two sets of hands.
I like the simple farmhouse look. I like the rustic look. I like the idea of a tray. It’s in rough mode right now. I promise it’ll look 100 times better after I fill in the (too many) screw holes, sand, add hardware, stain and paint it; maybe even add a transfer. Stay tuned!!
UPDATE: DIY Farmhouse Table Done!
