Nursery Side Table

I've been looking for a couple of months for a nice curvy little side table for the nursery. I wanted it to sit next to the rocking chair and have some storage for diapers and wipes. After searching Craigslist for something nice (and not finding "it"), I finally headed to Home Goods and found this little cutie. I was able to get an extra 10% off because of a few dings in the finish, so I was super excited about that.

The inserts in the cabinet door and the drawer front were a different shade of white than the rest of it and once I started painting everything else Heirloom White, I realized it was the wrong shade of white. So, I painted it out to match. I first primed the black/white parts and then sprayed it Heirloom White, but it needed a bit more.

I bought this green damask wrapping paper on clearance at Hobby Lobby last summer to use in my nursery, so I measured and cut it to fit the inset part of the cabinet and drawer. I used double stick tape to secure it on the corners and in the middle.

I also took all the hardware (originally antique brass colored) and spray painted it oil-rubbed bronze. This entire remake probably only took me 1 1/2 to 2 hours tops. It was great!

Before (I'd already taken all the hardware off)


All I have left to paint now is the rocking chair. I'm almost done with the furniture for the nursery. I can hardly wait to see everything come together!
