Light Blue Lovin'

Today I was planning to share another project that I finished during Christmas Break, but I couldn’t wait any longer to show off my newest piece of furniture!

As you know, I’ve been looking for an end table for the office since I started the room makeover back in March/April. I even considered building one myself, but I wanted something with drawers and my carpentry skills aren’t that advanced yet. I’ve been checking out thrift stores for the past few months, but nothing caught my eye. Anyway, last weekend I decided to stop at a nearby antique mall to see if I could expand my ironstone collection and I found this table.

It was marked $39, but they were having a storewide sale and this booth was offering 20%-off all items. I ended up paying $31, which I think is a great deal for a piece of solid wood furniture. At first I wasn’t sure about the light blue, but it’s growing on me. I think that if I can find some pillows that tie in the navy from the curtains and light blue from the end table I’ll leave the color as-is. 

I’m currently on the hunt for a lamp for the table and pillows for the couch. I’m getting so close to finishing this room…I can’t wait!

  1. It's totes adorbs! Hahah. Anyway that is what one of my students said when she saw it! Because yes. I share my love of DIY and decor with my students. I think it looks great in the space. I feel if you'd gone any bigger it would have just turned into a junk drawer mess and now it will be functional and it doesn't overwhelm the space. Good work! Love it! And $30 bucks to not have to paint it? #fabulous

  2. Very cute! I love the color! And I think that was a great price too.

  3. I love it! Totally thought you painted it at first. Throw pillows will work great to tie it together (but I'd even say it looks fine now, especially once you put a lamp or book or some on top of it to style it).

  4. So. I've been stalking you. It's #totes okay because I admitted it.So anyways, I was on your about me page, looking at the books you've read. (Which by the way is really impressive that you can keep track! I've read so many between working and just for fun I can't keep up!) However! I saw that you like the chosen series, if you haven't yet, make sure you read "Blue Bloods" it's really fast read and interesting! Ooooh! Or the "Uglies" series by Westerfield. Awesommmeeeee.

    Okay. Mischief managed. ;)

  5. Wah!!!!!!!love that palest of blues. swee end table. and those curtains!!!! sweet.

  6. Love your table, that color is perfect!!

  7. I like the color you chose Sam, so dainty and clean, and goes perfect with your walls - reminds me of a serene beach with the sand as your sofa :-)
