Bedside Table Talk

by - Wednesday, December 30, 2009

I've been on the hunt for a pair of bedside tables for a few months now for our master bedroom remodel. Luckily, a trip to our favourite hotel liquidator proved fruitful and we came across these:

They're solid cherry and in great condition. Seems a shame to paint them, but paint them we will. The style reminds me of these refinished pieces:

I'm thinking the room will be painted white and will paint these in the accent colour, whatever that is. Canary yellow? Leaf green? Robin's egg blue? What colour do you think I should paint them?

    Love the tables! Did you go recently. i will have to check the place out.I would love to get a pair for our guest bedroom.

  4. Sara, I like the blue too. I haven't used it yet in my home. This may be a good opportunity!

    Elizabeth, thanks! Here's a post about our appliances:
    I was just telling my husband today how much I love our appliances. Especially the refrigerator (so glad we went with the larger 25 cubic foot model).

    Anon, we went to Moveline on Boxing Day. Unfortunately, I believe these two were the last pair in this style. They did have other styles though which you can see on their site. But they are always getting in new things so its worth a trip to check them out every once in a while.

  5. Very cute tables. I really like the handles - they're different. I can't wait to see how they turn out!

  6. I'm totally swayed by the green.

  7. i second the green. and now i must find something to paint green...

    Great nightstands! I'm partial to robin's egg blue because it's my favorite color. The House of Turquoise blog has a lot of great examples you could check out if you haven't already. Can't wait to see what you pick!

  9. I think I would paint them blue because I love blue. Or orange to be crazy.

  10. Thanks for the tip threeacres! I'd forgotten about House of Turquoise.

  11. Colour depends entirely on other accents in the room. But I have to say, kudos on your Moveline find. This is one of my favorite bargain hunting grounds.
