Beth's Project Do It Now Project : Retro Green Side Table

One summer during college we rescued a large dresser from a friend and refinished it. It was our first experience stripping, sanding and varnishing a piece of furniture (and it took the entire summer). The things that stick out in our mind regarding that project are steel wool and paint in teeny tiny crevices that seemed virtually impossible to remove. But the finished product was definitely worth all the hard work. So for AT's Do It Now month, we've decided to have a go with a green side table...

The side table was a neighbor's castaway and we decided it would be perfect for AT's DIY month. Since it's been so long since our last refinishing project, we'll have to do our homework on the supplies needed. We also don't aren't sure if we'll leave it stained and varnished or paint the side table a high gloss white. We've been looking in the AT archives for inspiration but are welcoming ideas from AT readers as well. We are definitely going to invest in some new knobs for the drawers and thought a strip of decorative paper between the drawers might liven things up a bit. Stay tuned for our shopping trip where we round up supplies and decide the avenue our little green side table will take.
