This sweet little side table was refurbished by Marnia from Marnia’s Measures & Treasures with Elegance, Simplicity, and both natural and antiquing wax for her son’s woodland themed nursery!

I love the lines of this little side table but wanted to add a little character to it.

My youngest sons nursery is woodland themed so this was my inspiration. The colours I chose are neutral so it would be easy to fit in any gender nursery. I used Country Chic Paint’s All-in-One Decor Paint in Elegance and Simplicity. For the K on top, I used Creme Brulee.

First I painted the entire piece (excluding legs) in Simplicity and then painted 2 coats Elegance (excluding drawer). I used a blow dryer, set on high, to dry the paint quickly and that gave me the crackled look. I also let some drips happen as I like that look on certain pieces. Finishing off with Natural wax and then Antiquing wax to give it a worn look. I also waxed the legs to darken them up and bring them back to life.

For the finishing touch I added the adorable deer fabric to the drawer. (This will tie in nicely for my next project using Country Chic Paint’s new deer hardware).
