I found these end tables made from a disassembled vintage vanity for a steal of a deal and snatched them up. The previous owner had already sanded the drawers so they all worked smoothly and had revarnished the tops. The varnish, however, was discolored and full of bubbles so it had to be sanded down. I patched a few spots of chipped veneer and debated about color for a long time. I wanted to do a black wash for a highly distressed look but went with a cottage-y minty green for my mom.
Old Barn Milk Paint’s color “Letterbox” is the perfect vintage minty green. It’s a very subtle color and will look great with my mom’s lake cottage color palette. The milk paint didn’t chip dramatically so I distressed the edges and tops.
With matching white and gold floral knobs and drawer liners, these little cuties were ready to head to their new home. (Update: we decided to switch to the glass knobs I prefer…more pictures to come when they’re settled in their home!)
