Barcelona Orange Bedside Tables

My latest project was updating two matching bedside tables–straight from the 1970′s.  The old surface was a faux ”green oak”  laminate veneer.


My hope was that a fresh update with Chalk Paint® would help usher the furniture into the modern era.

I decided to banish the faux oak laminate with Annie Sloan’s bright and bold Barcelona Orange Chalk Paint ®.


Provence Chalk Paint® will be used inside the drawers for a special touch.

Provence_OpenLidFirst I used Annie Sloan’s Graphite paint to cover the faux wood grain of the veneer.  This allowed me to achieve better coverage overall.


Next I topped it off with Barcelona Orange.


The paint was sealed with Annie Sloan’s Clear Soft Chalk Paint® Wax.


The jewelry-like drawer pulls were updated with spray paint in oil-rubbed bronze.

It is amazing how the power of paint can transform such outdated pieces!


Once timeworn and lackluster, these fun & functional side tables have fresh modern appeal!


Thanks to Barcelona Orange!
