Our Side Table Before and After Makeover/ Hallway

I decided to get a little creative with our boring, black side table.  I painted it a cottage white, and gave it a pop of color with a red, floral knob from Anthropologie. These are the before and after photographs.
After: Side table painted white with bright drawer knob from Anthropologie
The Provence bench is from World Market (available, here, on sale now- as of 9/3/12)
*Note: the Provence bench does not have much support in the middle. My husband, Craig, had to add a 2x6 custom-fit board beneath it. 

Fun knobs I got from Anthropologie! I decided on the red, floral knob for this side table makeover.

After: brass knob replaced with knob from Anthropologie.

After: (I know, bad photo, bad lighting... I will try again later) Drawer interior painted blue



  1. What a huge difference. I can see how the new changes lighten up the space. Well done.

    I love the knob. We're currently decorating our new place (we just moved) and I've been trying to repaint furniture. This definitely gave me some new ideas.

  6. You did a great job! Thanks for following me. I am following right back.

    Back to your table, love how you painted the drawer blue inside, great pop of colour and unexpected.
