Gold Dipped Side Table Update

I've had this boring white side table in my son's room ever since he was a baby.  It was a great place to rest a bottle of water during middle of the night feedings or store a few of his favorite books.  As he got older and moved to a bed, the side table got used less and less.  For the past 3 years it's sat unused just taking up space.  His room is incredibly small and every inch of floor space counts.  So, a few weeks ago I removed the table and added a rustic white basket that I bought from HomeGoods.  Both of my kids are stuffed animal fanatics.  It was more important to have an extra place for their treasured stuffed animals than a wasted side table.

The table was originally purchased at HomeGoods for less than $20 and was perfect for a quick update.  While my son road his bike in the driveway and garage I worked on updating the table.
I taped off the legs with frog tape, covered the rest of the table with a plastic bag and gave the legs a couple coats of shiny gold spray paint.
To jaz up the drawer, I measured and cut a piece of scrap paper and used Mod Podge to glue it to the wood. 

The table will either find a home in the basement or possibly in our unfinished "finished" mudroom.  


  1. LOVE this! The gold dipped legs, the new drawer and that super cute pull!
