Painted Vintage Side Table

First off, I have to tell you~~~~
The Kitchen cabinets are completed.
It took me 3 days from start to finish.
Painted, Sealed and Finished.

However, I don't have pics to share yet, but I will soon.

Today I want to share this sweet vintage side table I found a few months ago.

When I saw this little gem at one of my favorite antique markets, it just had to come home with me.
With a flip open top for storage, it is built very sturdy and the perfect size.

I knew it would be right at home in my sitting room.
So out with the chalk paint and the makeover began!
I used Lace, by DecoArt. 
It is one of my favorites colors now. Not a true white, more like a soft vanilla ice cream.

Here it is now.
I was going to add more details on the skirt, but decided less was more and with a little distress and the natural aging on the edge, it's perfect.

Look at the light crackle that happened on the edge.

I added a glass knob to the table front.

When I found the table, I also found this beautiful little candy dish.
Pure joy!

I left the aqua accents to the mix for summer and painted this little birdhouse.

In my recent post for this room you saw black accents in here.
Since then I moved the black rug, tables and accents to the library and here is the new look.
I am loving the tone on tone of whites and creams, 
and the best part~
I found this gorgeous rug with that combo too.

Have you painted any furniture lately?
Have you tried DecoArt Chalk Paint?


Thank you for stopping by.
I love it when you visit and leave a few words.

See you soon with some kitchen pics!


Before I go, I have to share my gorgeous jewelry win 

Gorgeous blue earrings and bracelet set in gold with crystals and beads.
and this beautiful rose, pearls and pink crystal set.
Thank you Jan,
I love them both and so excited to have won.

Congratulations on your win. I love your table and the makeover. Love your living room area too! I think the little glass knob gave that beautiful piece a punch to me! I've not tried my hand at using chalk paint yet but need too! Love it all. Pictures are beautiful! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Betty said...

The table looks so pretty after you have painted it. I have to say it looks exactly like a table that one of my Moms friends had and she would keep her yarn in it by her livingroom chair.

Hi Celeste! Oh, that little table turned out just charming and looks wonderful in the setting! The candy dish is so pretty too. You have been one busy little gal getting your kitchen finished in 3 days! Superwoman! I can't wait to see it.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Love that little table. So neat that is has that little cubby for storage. I have a thing for small tables. If they're a good price I just can't leave them there. No idea where I'm going to put them, but gotta have it! LOL Your makeover is so dreamy. Love the way you have decorated your room. Someday if all my kids are gone, probably never, due to their disabilities (but I can dream ;) ) I would love to decorate with whites. So inviting and embracing.
Hope you have a great day and your arms aren't too tired from painting the cabinets!

White Lace and Promises said...

Such a pretty sitting area. The table is perfect. This would be great for my small space living to hide all the magazines. Sooooo pretty! All of it!

Red Rose Alley said...

Your little side table is so pretty, Celestina. It goes nicely next to the couch. I really like the white color too, it's more of a soft white. The candy dish is so sweet.

Thank you for your comment on my "thoughts" post. It touched my heart, and I appreciate it.


Deborah Montgomery said...

It turned out so beautifully! I love it. the crackling and the little glass knob are perfect. I love the room, I'm feeling like getting rid of more color b/c I love the white/cream palette too. So soothing. Can't wait to see your kitchen cupboards. xo blessings, Deborah

Jan Hermann said...

I didn't get your blog feed today...hmmmm. Good thing you stopped by me today because I haven't been around all week! Love your tone on tone of whites and creams and that beauty of a rug.

Thanks for posting pix of the Give-Away items you received from me. I'm so glad you love them!


Okio B Designs said...

Your table came out beautifully! Such a great find. I haven't tried that paint yet - on my list of things to buy the next time I'm at Michael's or AC Moore.

I love your table! Paint magic! Lace is one of my favorite colors too! I just painted a chair with it, but have to recover it before sharing it. Your room looks fabulous! I love the lighter accents for summer. It's so serene!

Irene Helms Designs said...

What a charming sitting area Celestina! I love the table makeover. I must try the DecoArt Chalk Paint on one of my projects ... when I do will be sure to post something. LOL! Irene

Unknown said...

Oh Celeste! Be still my heart! That entire room is dreamy! I am in love with light blues lately and can't wait to have time to paint walls and accents. I am curious about the Deco chalk paint. I *think that is the one I saw at Michaels and was curious. Is that where you found it?
Anyway, as always it's all beautiful!
Let me know about the chalkpaint!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

That turned out so cute- I like the crackled edge! Your sitting room is pretty- I guess I've never seen it as a whole! That's a very pretty picture above the sofa and I like how you brought in some aquas. Love the print on the chair and the pillows. I have stained solid hickory kitchen cabinets and vowed to never touch them but if I did it would be some kind of white. Looking forward to seeing what you did with yours!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

It is perfect...The perfect part is finding a vintage table that is high enough for our over stuffed couches....I have been Searching for just that size. The room looks decorator you!


Row homes and Cobblestones said...

3 days??? Wow, what an accomplishment to complete kitchen cabinets in 3 days! Might of been 3 weeks for me ;-) You totally rock and I am so looking forward to your reveal. I enjoy your blog and check in to see your new posts, I promise to leave more comments.

Hi Celestina Marie,

Look forward to seeing your new kitchen cupboards, you did that so quickly - also love the new look to the little table - the crackled edge is lovely.
Your room is really gorgeous and so inviting and comfortable looking.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Celeste! What a perfect little side table. It looks wonderful painted and the glass knob is a nice touch. It looks like the perfect size for your sitting room, too. Your new color combo looks wonderful for summer. I haven't painted any furniture {not since I closed my booth} as we are all full up here at home.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dear Celeste! I get your posts through email but they come in very late...I am so excited to see yet another transformation that has taken place in your workshop! The crackle is perfect, and to see the entire room in glorious vintage white (with a great touch of blue) is EXCITING! Great work my friend. I too have been finding some great but small pieces to change. There's just something empowering about taking an object and making it into what you want. This is so fun, to follow you! Anita

Mari said...

Celeste, your table turned out beautiful my friend...
I have been painting my vintage french china cabinet with Annie Sloan white chalk paint, since it's a large piece I'm taking my time with her ;-) I still need to wax, and age her a little ;-)


Ivy and Elephants said...

The side table is just beautiful,
looks perfect in this room. I love the lift top and all that room for storage, fantastic!

LJS said...

Celestina, When I return home from traveling I am just amazed at your creativity. The Kitchen is exquisite and beautiful too.
Love, Mr. LJS

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

The table is gorgeous! And storage too! Love it and the color is pretty. Your makeover in the sitting room is so soft and summer like. I love black accents but sometimes I crave the softness of whites and pastels. Looking forward to seeing your cabinets!!! Have a great weekend!

Oh, you are a brave soul to paint it, Celeste, but then again, you are an extraordinary painter. Along with the tea cart seen in my imaginatory, Mr G found a side table almost identical to yours a few weeks ago. It has the same flip top but also a magazine railing on one side. Now I'll think of you whenever I look at it. :)
Have a lovely weekend, friend.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Very pretty...I love the crackle around the edge too! I have tried that paint on a bench I put at the foot of our went on nicely I would definitely use it again!
