Project Procrastination: Vanity Table, Stool and Bedside Table

Remember the handful of furniture projects (okay, eight) that I posted to Linda’s Pinterest board, Project Procrastination…..Finish the Unfinished in February? These were pieces of furniture that have been hanging around my house waiting for a makeover.
The first three were for my master bedroom.
In redoing our master, I needed to figure out not only how to make the colors of the room more pleasing, but also how to make the space function better. Considering that our bathroom is very small and Mark and I are constantly shuffling around each other, I forwent matching nightstands in the bedroom, and instead opted to create a little vanity table for myself on one side of the bed.
Before:  the Bombay Company table plus a little plant stand.
After:  this area is still a huge work in progress, but so far I am loving my own little space!

I found this remnant Kravet fabric ages ago and wanted to use it to recover my headboard, but it was just a smidge too small. Instead I used a piece of it to make a hand sewn slipcover for the plant stand, with a piece of foam cut to size as a cushion. As you can see, it’s FAR from perfect, but I think it’s kinda cute.

 After this project I am even more motivated to figure out the sewing machine!!!!

On the other side of the bed, I put to use my Facebook Yardsale purchase {the “Annie Table”, named after my sweet neighbor from whom I bought it}. It’s perfect for the alarm clock and a book.
After:  all it needed was a quick refresh with a coat of spray paint.
After debating color schemes all winter, I decided I really LOVE the teal-ish navy blue wall color with soft sand and crisp white. Simple. Quiet. Peaceful.
It will be fun to bring in pops of color throughout the year.
I’m already dreaming of the gems from my garden for my little vanity table.
Pink in the spring/summer and orange and red in the fall/winter.
I love them all with navy as the background.

Meanwhile, I still have snow on the ground here.
How about you – did spring arrive to you yet or are you still dreaming?

My vanity table is one of my most FAVE projects in my house. Don't they just make you feel so special? And I'm not a high maintenance gal.

The wall color with the white is sooooo dreamy!! Way to go, girl!

Say what!! Lisa, it's beautiful! I can't believe that stool was a little plant stand. And oh my goodness, part of me wishes we had snow on the ground - we've been up to 95 degrees since the second week of March. I'm ready for it to cool down again!

Lisa, the tables look amazing, and the wall color is SO pretty! Do you know the paint colors you used for the tables and the navy walls? I'd love to feature this!
