Let's Talk Vintage #106: Popular Side Table Makeover Colors

Hello and welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!



This is where we (vintage lovin' folks) gather together to share our latest projects, vintage finds, junkin' hauls and more!

If you love vintage too, feel free to link up your latest blog post or even a vintage item you sell!

This week I'm still playing catch up after participating in a store promotion... then we went to our lake house in the Adirondacks to close it up for the winter. I'm not caught up yet so there will be no features again this week! My apologies!




Today I'm going to share one of my side tables in what seems to be a very popular shade of aqua.

This table sold almost before I was even finished working on it. A customer saw it in the store in the "still need to paint the drawer, sand and wax" mode. She decided it was the perfect table for what she needed it to accomplish. My Sister also saw it online and wants us to find another for her! (Although she is thinking in the colors of white/gray.)


Which brings me to some of the other popular colors.

White or off white are big sellers, of course! Neutrals are always a winner.


I don't have as much luck with black.

They eventually sell but the lighter neutrals are IT! I'm sure this was no surprise to anyone.

I'm waiting to find the right person as well for this two-toned white/wood grain piece.


I can't help but love this beautiful shade of aqua. It is actually the color named Cascade in the folk art chalk paint line. And this table sold not long after I put it in the shop, too!

Thank you for checking out today's post on side tables!
I'm linking up with the Vintage Charm Link Party here.

Now, let's see who else is talking vintage today:
