Juicy Cantalope and Robin's Egg Blue

I don't have a crafty bone in my body.
I'm typically the worst home decorator out of all of my friends.
I don't have much sense of style.

But I think these came out pretty darn well if I do say so myself!

End tables for our new living room!

Found them in my parent's garage and basement! 

I was trying to lighten up the dark chocolate brown of our living room furniture!



I would like to get new handles, but the spray painted ones work well for now!

Caleb's old dresser that was in about the same shape
as the end tables before they were painted.
I wish I would have taken before pictures. 

Caleb's new bed frame.

The kids used to be in bunk beds, but now they will have their own rooms.

The orange color of the dresser and bed frame
will go nicely with the superhero theme of his new room!

I cannot wait to move!!!

Don't sell yourself short......very nice! Love the blue tables. And I thought those handles were new!

Sounds like you are having fun. :o)

Those are awesome! I'm not crafty either but for some reason refurbishing furniture works for me as well. Very nice, can't wait to see the new house. They'll be pictures right???

Love them!!! I've been searching for just the right dresser to refurb as a new entertainment center for us, too. Never would have thought about blue, but it's fabulous! :)

Very nice!

Oh they look great! I think they're very stylish but this IS coming from the girl who painted her house before she met her husband (and had a kelly green bedroom, hot pink bed room, purple bathroom and turquoise living room.) I'm for color!

Those look great, Jill!! I love the color of the end tables.

LOVE these. And it's given me some ideas for some worn out furniture at my house!

Stephanie said...

is this spray paint? I am refinishing an old desk and want to paint it blue.

The handles look new and the tables look AMAZING! OH MY GOSH Jill I'm going to copy you! :) Was it spray paint or regular paint? What brand and finish? PLEASE email the details at nikki.sjoblom@gmail.com!!

I am also wondering if you used spray paint...they look fabulous! I tried to spray something last month, but didn't turn out as nice as yours! God works in such mysterious ways...can't believe that you all and Ewan's mom and dad are moving at the same time and are both pregnant again...Congrats and will continue to keep you in our prayers.
