I picked up a great little side table the other day, and plan to give it a makeover.
But what to do?
Love this vintage 1920s table.

The distressing you see is actually the original paint starting to chip and peel. No faux in this look, but it can be done!
Or I could go with a dark distressed top…

And a fun colour on the bottom. I have been thinking about maybe a grayish-blue.
I like what Kate from Centsational Girl did here.

Classic country chic, a look that never tires.
I could swap out the white for black…
Black works well in our space, but I’m not sure.
Maybe a distressed black would be a better fit.

And in the end, I’m not even sure I want a stained top.
Maybe a distressed gray top and another colour on the bottom.

I’m thinking I would paint the bottom in a darker colour though. Or maybe I’ll just paint the whole table out in one solid colour.
It’s fun trying to decide what to do. That’s what I love about DIY makeovers – you can do anything you want, and the possibilities are endless!
How about you? Got any projects brewing that are waiting on a direction, too?
Thanks for stopping by!
