Four Drawer Side Table

You have seen this wall in my office decorated many times on previous posts, but I think I finally got it right this time. I could not be more excited about the progress I’ve made in this room, and I am so excited to share it soon. It is such a collection of all of my favorite flea market finds and DIY projects. Not much of what is in my office was bought new, which is why I just love it so much. It just goes to show what you can do with things that are repurposed.

I have had this little four drawer chest for a very long time that my aunt had given to me for free. I sanded it, stained it dark, and bought some new silver pulls for it, but it just didn’t look it’s best to me. I decided I would put it in the basement until I came up with another idea for it. It’s a unique piece, in my opinion, so recently I thought I would give it another go. I stripped it, which was a huge mess, it got rained on, then it sat in our garage for a few months. I was over it and on the verge of just sending it off to Goodwill or something.

However, when I was out in the garage painting another project, I just randomly pulled it out and started dry brushing it with some gray/white paint mixture I made, right over the crustiness of the old color that I hadn’t fully cleaned off yet. I grabbed the silver pulls, and sprayed them a textured black. Then I convinced my husband to build me a base for it so I could turn it into a table. I didn’t want to give up on this little chest and I am so so glad I didn’t!

Moral of the story, if you have a piece that your gut is telling you could be great, have patience and wait until you come up with the perfect idea for it.
