Do you have outdated art deco furniture in your home that could use an upgrade? Crystal from Team Sutton Designs used Happy Hour to transform these nightstands into beautiful, beachy home decor!

Spring is here and that means time for some fun, refreshing colors to brighten up your home! I found these cute deco style end tables at an antique store in my home town of El Paso, Texas.

At first, they seemed like something anyone would pass by, especially since Art Deco isn’t really a popular style. But I knew that if painted in a fun color, they could definitely have the potential to be statement pieces and speak for themselves.

This is what the end tables looked like before paint, but after prep. The cool thing about these tables, is that the wood has some gorgeous rigid grain. It almost has a driftwood feel to it that reminds me of weathered wood that washes up on a beach. You can run your fingers across the edge and feel the grooves of the wood. I knew that I wanted this to fit in a coastal home or something near the water. So I chose, Country Chic Paint’s “Happy Hour” which is a very pretty mint color from their limited edition line. This truly I the perfect minty green color, and I can see it paired with gorgeous beach glass, seashells and lots of white and glass décor.

I lightly distressed the edges to give it some added character and tie in the deep wood grain. I wanted these pieces to seem aged, but refreshed. Then I went over it with a watered down wash of the same color paint just to add even more texture tie in the salt wash feel.

After sealing with a clear coat, and adding some plain white ceramic rose knobs, these tables are ready to fit right into a home near the water, where they can display all their weathered wood beauty. The interiors were freshened up with Danish oil.

I hope you guys love this color as much as I do. It really is a very pretty, neutral color that breaks from the usual white and linens. Ill definitely be using this color again!
