I was busy last weekend working on a bedroom mini makeover!
Here is a part of the makeover.
I had found an old sewing table a few months back and thought what a great night table it would make! It cost twenty dollars without the sewing machine in it. I spent the following months trying to find one to match it from a thriftstore. I finally found another one this weekend. It came with the sewing machine in it and was thirty-five dollars, too much for me but it was 50% off Fridays so it only cost me seventeen dollars!
You can see here in an old post what I had been using as night stands before. They were two little metal tables from IKEA. While they held most necessities, It dwarfed in comparison to my kingsize bed. My bed is quite high and I wanted a table that would be high as well.
I painted both tables in my favourite white, Ben Moore’s Cloud White. This table had three little diamond shapes on the front which I removed. I may add a knob to match it with the table on the right.
You can see the before pic of one of the tables here in an old post. You can also see those little diamonds on the front, a little too retro for me!
Looks gorgeous! I love the fact that those are sewing tables … I never would have guessed!
You hear a lot about designers using Cloud White these days – just wondering what colour you have on your bedroom walls? I want to paint our room white as well, just don't know which colour (we are North facing – so cooler light makes it's way into our space). Any advice?

I too have an old sewing table (sans machine) for my nightstand! I love that it is a little bit higher than an average night stand. I painted mine but since I didn't want to put a knob on it, I just turned it around and the back is now the front. Mine was actually in our chicken coop when we moved to Red Gate Farm…. so it was free with purchase you might say 😉
They look good and fit your bedroom nicely.

Too funny, I was giving my bedroom a mini makeover this weekend too! We rearranged all the furniture and put up some new curtains. It's still not photo-worthy yet, though.
I love those tables and they are the perfect size for beside your bed. Very crisp looking!!

Such a pretty room. Love the table painted white and love your romantic bedding.

Those are some bargain nightstands! And they look so cute!! Much more sturdy than the Ikea tables I imagine. Your rooms are so pretty. I always love looking at them!
What a great improvement from the IKEA nightstands. I am in the middle of bedroom decorating as well! I am anxious to see your bedskirt, as I am getting ready to sew one myself.

I am so glad you posted this! I just pulled 2 old sewing tables from my warehouse yesterday to paint up for my guest room project! I was aftraid they would still be too small next to a king size bed, but your photos have put my fears to rest! They looks great! Thanks for the post….everything looks fabulous, as always!

I love your home! How pretty, now I have seen these and even thought of turning them into end tables, but have not. You've done a wonderful job, it's sooo Modern Country Cottage looking. I love it. Well done, xoxo tami

Looks beautiful, Kim! Great idea to add height and weight for balance. I love a bargain, too. Why pay high prices when you can get the same look ,or better, for less?! Can't wait to see the rest! 🙂 Michelle
The sewing table are a perfect fit for your bedroom. I love them painted up in white.
I have a sewing table in my living room. It fills in an ackward spot at the top of my stairs leading to the kitchen. I love that it's tall enough to allow a basket underneath it for all the stuff that needs to go downstairs, yet I'm too lazy to do it right away! LOL
Can't wait to see tomorrow post.
Love the sewing machine tables. They look so pretty in your room.
I love your bedroom Kimberley! The tables really look great in your room! Your bedding is beautiful too!

Gorgeous! I love your bedroom. Oh how I do so love white. But with two little girls and black cat it just can't be done in my home I'm afraid.
Kim, I'm so happy you commented on my bathroom because it led me to your blog! You have an absolutely gorgeous home, and I'm excited to follow along with you!

Hi Kimberly! I'm a new follower and I love your blog!
Everything about your room is beautiful, but that little pink glass knob is too cute!
The little details like that make projects extra special!
I love it! It seems like those tables are everywhere. I even have one in our basement. I should get it out and start making a bedside table!
I love it! I have a sewing table exactly like that I revamped before, but the white looks so great, I might just have to try it again! ( I just had my husband store it in the attic! whoops!)
Anyway, question for ya, I was wondering if you would ever consider writing a house tour post for our blog Remodelaholic, I am loving everything I see on your blog. OR a fun decorating ideas… Send me an email if you are interested! (you can usually just respond to this comment!)

Oh, soooo pretty! Love the solidness it gives the space next to the big bed. 🙂
Such a lovely room looks very inviting,lucky guests!
Now I'm wishing we kept our old sewing machine! We've been looking for nightstands too! Looks beautiful!
Very pretty Kim! I love the pink knob. 🙂 They look so great in your room! I have those same Ikea tables, I love them and I had them next to my bed at one point, we have a king too, and they were so small. Now it serves as a little table in the family room in the winter and goes on my deck in the summer! 🙂 I can't wait to see the new bedskirt!!
