Slap some paint on it!

One of my blogging besties Erika asked for a close-up of my bedside tables so here they are. I have purchased about half my stuff through my own design showroom and the other half is stuff I find on Ebay or Craigslist and change up. I got these bedside tables on Ebay and they were yellow and covered in tons of varnish. I loved the size of them and the brass handles and base. It definitely needed loads of elbow grease, so I had some local guys clean up the brass, strip the old varnish, and re-lacquer in white. I love them!

Then I have a client who desperately needs this bamboo cabinet. I would have the same guys who did my lacquer job paint it out white for her dining room...

Basically, my motto in life is "slap some paint on it". As long as it has great lines anything looks gorgeous painted white.
Till tomorrow, dumplings!
