Pretty in Pink

Stacy and Julie from Salvage Sisters & Co are joining us for their very first Country Chic Paint blog post today! Come see how they refurbished this sweet little side table with Cherry Blossom and natural wax for a baby girl’s nursery.

My dear friend asked me to paint a side table for her adorable baby’s room and of course I happily said yes! The table is a great little piece – it’s sturdy, has clean lines, and is solid wood.

Because baby Evie’s room is filled with soft hues of pink, grey, & creamy white I thought we needed to kick it up a notch so I chose Cherry Blossom!

I think Cherry Blossom is the perfect shade of pink that will work well now and for years to come. I painted two coats of Cherry Blossom and once it dried, I came back with a 220-grit sanding block to give it a soft velvety finish. I then took a warm soapy cloth and rubbed away some of the paint around the edges to give the table a lightly distressed look.

I didn’t want to get carried away with the distressing because the table has minimal detail so I chose to just hit the edges for a naturally “worn-over-time” look. Once I was done painting, distressing, & removing the dust, I finished with a coat of Natural Wax.

I think the table is the perfect accent table for baby Evie’s room, don’t you?

Stacy & Julie {Salvage Sisters & Co}

We are two sisters living in Nebraska and Colorado pursuing our dream of having a business together – painting, repurposing and salvaging furniture and decor. In 2014 after a few years in the south, Stacy moved back to Nebraska. With our distance apart being less excruciating we decided to jump on the opportunity to follow our passion for crafting and start doing festivals and shows. Thanks to all of our friends in the community our tent was bare by the end of each weekend! We quickly learned our dreams were becoming a reality and we needed a way to be more in touch on a daily basis and so, our online store was born.

As we continue to grow we strive for our business to embody all of the things that we hold nearest to our heart- family, community and home. The Salvage Sisters are all about spending time together with the people we love and there’s no better place to do that than home. We are inspired by comfortable, lived-in homes that are filled with a perfect balance of both old and new. We hope that our passion shines from the warmth of our hearts into your home.
