vintage style bedside table

love love love this bedside table by courtney of two straight lines. definitely hits the mommy-daughter sweet spot.


“i found this inexpensive unfinished table at ikea that was about the size i wanted. at first i thought i would paint it or slipcover it, and then i remembered these vintage patterns for little girl’s dresses that i had found in the front of my mom’s sewing book. …


so, i decided to blow up one of the images and apply it to the side of the table. i painted the whole table a buttermilk color, printed the image on cream paper, decoupaged it on with matte mod podge, sanded it lightly, then waxed the whole piece with a paste wax (like briwax).”

    Love this idea! Very creative! I have some vintage patterns I could try. Maybe even the pictures in the front envelope. Great!
