Furniture for my sister!

My sister and her hubby bought a house this past summer.  They spent the entire summer renovating and making it amazing!! They did a fabulous job and everything looks so great.  I'll be posting bits and pieces of the actual renovation later, but for now, here are just a couple of pieces I did just for them.

You all know that when you buy a house, especially a huge house like my sis and bro did everyone wants to donate all of their old stuff to you, and you gladly accept, right?  Here is a pic of the side table in their master bedroom before....

Here is the after!  I love this color!  It's Rustoleum Spray Paint in Aqua.  I also did a hutch of my own in this color and I will post about it soon.





This is a pic of the long dresser that matches---I can't find the before picutre, but you can imagine, right?



What do you think?? Not bad for free, right??

Hi Mary,
I sprayed a coat of primer first and then just lightly sanded in a few places. The spray paint went on so easily! Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!

Looks brand new! LOve the color. I just bought an antique kitchen stool and am trying to decide what color to paint it...thank you for sharing the color you used.

Spray paint? I am assuming so since it's rustoleum.

Love the turquoise with the silver hardware. Such a great way to give old furniture a new lease on life :-) Makes me kind of wish people would give me their old furniture!
