Before and After: Side Table

At the end of May, I posted about this neat side table with the very interesting accounting on the back of the drawer.  Be sure to check out that post to see how Pat paid off on his boat.

Well, as soon as my daughter came home, she claimed it, and among many other projects, refinished it this summer in the hopes of having an apartment...and job...soon.  

Thankfully, both happened!  And, this table is perfect in her apartment which is in a historically restored apartment building.  She stripped it and stained it with a fairly dark stain. Then she applied a few coats of polycrylic.  The accounting is still untouched on the back of the drawer. :)

She found a knob on clearance at Anthropology and that gave this piece a bit of a modern vibe which brings it in line with her style.

Here it sits on move in day.  I will be sharing more of her apartment and her summer projects as I get a chance.  See that neat book shelf there?  That was one of them.

  1. Your daughter did a great job on the table and it looks very at home in her apartment.

  2. Went back to read the story of the drawer... how fun! Maybe it was a covert operation... hiding the cost from his wife maybe... LOL

  3. Great results on that fun table with its very own story...
    fun conversation piece as well!

  4. Great job by your daughter, it turned out great.

  5. I love it! What a clever makeover. And that drawer handle finishes it off perfectly.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
