Sarah M. Dorsey Designs is back to show how to make a simple metal base for a table – using aluminum strips and rivets. This would be perfect to make a trunk or chest a little higher or if you have a top and need a simple base. For the past month or so I’ve been using my campaign chest as an end table in my living room. I loved the idea of it as a nightstand, but I prefer my nightstand about level with the mattress. Inspired by Pottery Barn’s Ludlow Trunk, adding a simple metal base, made it the perfect nightstand height!
Back in December I was perusing Home Goods when I came upon a table on clearance for $65. I don’t think the color combination of the table appealed to many, hence the reason it was on clearance. I loved the shape of it, especially the curve on the bottom drawer. I decided to give this a little chalk-like paint finish makeover using the same colors as the sofa table I did last year with some CeCe Caldwell chalk paint.
Carmel from Our Fifth House is back sharing her spray painted nightstand. Who says furniture can’t be pink? I love it and the story behind it is even better. If you are one who hates painting over wood avert your eyes – it is pink alright!
