Handsome Red Side Tables
These side tables came from a client who I purchased a secretary from back in August (or July? I can't keep track anymore). They'd mentioned the side tables project to me when I was out there but then time passed quicker than it should and here it was October! So they brought the tables down and I got started on them. We opted for a darker top than the original honey color, just to play up the beautiful graining of the solid cherry. I painted the bases in Benjamin Moore's Merlot mixed into a chalk paint, distressed, and sealed with wax. Finally I swapped out two underwhelming teensy brass pulls for gutsy burnished copper knobs.
