Drop leaf side table

I'm so excited to reveal this cool table I just finished about an hour ago.  I purchased it from one of my favorite local thrift stores.  I'm really into side tables these days.  I hope there is a demand for them, because I've got several lined up to be refinished.
I took a different approach with this one, I loved that it had two drop leaves on the sides.  Very versatile, for almost all your side table needs. 

I sanded the tops down to bare wood and put a dark walnut stain on it.
I really wanted to do a color, so I went up to Lowe's and chose a cool turquoise called Woodlawn Valley Haze by Valspar. It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but close enough. I ended up adding a touch of black to it to calm it down.

Update:This piece has sold
I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend!

  17. I happened upon your blog today from House of Turquoise and I have to tell you that I am SO excited to see this drop side end table idea. I have two of these that were handed down to me and I have been so nervous to paint them like I wanted to until now! Thanks for sharing this idea. Out of curiosity, how much did you sell it for?
