Bedside Manners

Have I told you how much I hate my little point and shoot camera?

You literally have to wait for the exact moment when the light is just right and and the Sun is Shining, and Jupiter aligns with Mars for it to take even a so so photo. I just don't have the time these days.

That being said, you now know my excuse for these rather noisy photos of a Bedside Table the Hubs finished for our Bedroom.

Even cruddy pics can't ruin how lovely it turned out. He's a master painter I tell you, aside from other things ;)

This is an old sewing table he put one of his "Custom French Finishes" on. He mixes his own Chalk Paint (my apologies to Annie Sloan). For pennies on the dollar.

 Gentle distressing, and an aged look.

Bedroom to be revealed this month, for now it's a tease.

  2. Thank you for stopping by Harrison Home! I am so glad you did so I got a chance to see and follow your blog!

  3. Tami, I love those mauve coloured bottles,so pretty with the light shining through. Lovely finish on the table too. Thank you for visiting me and for your nice comments. I never thought of a little jug instead of a scoop. It's amazing how much inspiration we can get from each other when we blog. xx jeanetteann

  4. Tami...the table is beautiful!! it is distressed just perfectly. I wish I could do a project like this!

    I can't wait to see the room reveal!


  5. This table looks great! What a talented husband. :)

  6. Great job on that table, and he mixes his own paint? Send me the recipe, please!
    I love your lavender vintage bottles. I am always on the hunt for lavender and can never find them.

  7. Your table looks wonderful! The hubby did a great job! Don't you just love DIY chalk paint? This is a lovely piece!

  8. Beeeautiful job on that sweet little table! That hubby of yours is certainly a keeper! :)

  9. I'm telling you that little table is gorgeous! His paint is really good! You are a lucky woman! hugs, Linda

  10. Gorgeous table! I wish my husband could do that!!
    In regards to the camera, I was in exactly the same situation as you with my point and shoot. I did recently by a refurbished canon DSLR and lens from the canon website. It was a really good price and I am very happy with it. Check out canon's refurbished cameras sometime if you ever decide to get a new one. Looking forward to your bedroom reveal!

  11. The table is indeed lovely. I think it's wonderful that your husband is involved in your projects. I'm impressed! The table has just the right amount of distressing. Way cool.


  12. this is darling! Will your hubby share his recipe for the paint???

  13. Those pics look pretty good to me! Love that table, really really love it! That glass is pretty gorgeous too! X

  14. Your husband did a fantastic job. I love your bedside table! I look forward to seeing the rest of your bedroom.

  15. I love bedding, old, new no matter. I've been moving husband into paint with dark colors, white I'd just love, very nice.

  16. It turned out fantastic.I had a point and shoot until October. Its funny when I look back on those photos they have that "grainy" feel but I have to say I kind of like it. It makes everything seem very soft. I think your pics look great:))
    Have a great day

  17. Loving that table! Can't wait to see the whole room!

  18. Ooh you are a tease! It looks gorgeous and I love the lavender bottles. Your pictures look great and I have the same issue with light at my house, just not enough and it needs to be the right time of day.
    Hugs to you and I can't wait to see the room!

  19. Such a gorgeous table, Tami! Love all the amethyst bottles arranged on top, too!

  20. Oh, I tell ya....

    That Husband of your's is a keeper!!!

    Give him a big hug from me :-)

    Groovy table!

    I especially love the stack of little pillows!

  21. I so love this pink table! He did a fantastic job with the painting and it is so sweet.
