Before and After: Dotty Aqua Bedside Table

I momentarily blanked on taking a proper before shot of this simple little bedside table.  But picture it - dark brown wood with an ornate brass hanging pull...you with me?  I managed to take a snap mid-priming, at least for blogging purposes!

This was the perfect opportunity to use one of my new fabulous knobs from Anthropologie, so I settled on a simple paint job in a bold colour.  The colour is an aqua blue green, one of the new mistints I just picked up from Benjamin Moore.  The cream and aqua polka-dot knob is the little jewel that really pulls it all together.

Cute eh?  It was hard to resist 'over-accessorizing' with paper accents but that knob is just too special to compete with other details.  I think it would be fab in a girly girl's bedroom!

If you live in the Winnipeg area and are hunting for that perfect bedside table, you can buy the Dotty Aqua Bedside Table from Lather Creations here!

Have a lovely evening!
