campaign style side tables in navy

I am a chronic furniture hunter.  Even when I swear off buying furniture (because I have more than I have space for) I still am always looking.  I found these side tables/night stands on a local buy and sell site and snagged them immediately.  Solid oak, reminiscent of campaign style furniture, brass hardware - perfect combination.

Here is what they looked like from the ad:

I knew I wanted to do something dark and bold.  Black seemed a bit too harsh and grey seemed a bit drab - so I pulled out the best in between - navy! A punch of colour but still neutral and matches any decor.  

The tables were in near perfect condition.  A little wood filler in a couple scratches and a light sanding and cleaning were all that was needed to prep the tables.  I painted them in two coats of Peacoat, my favourite navy from Country Chic Paint.

I wanted to keep the more modern industrial look of these tables, so I opted for no distressing.  I sanded them lightly with 220 grit to remove any texture from painting and then gave them a couple coats of satin poly.

These tables went from drab and dated to modern and stylish with just a couple coats of paint! Country Chic Paint is easy to use and gives a flawless finish every time.
