Shabby Chic Bedside Tables

7 Dec

Oh how I love new furniture purchases, and this one is especially exciting because it’s a a custom piece!

Back in May I recieved a gift card from my bridal shower (thanks!) to a very cool furniture store in my neighborhood called Bella Decor.  But when I finally was ready to use it, I got to the store to find out they had closed!!  BOO!! Well fortunately their sister store Sunshine Lucy’s which is just a town over would accept their gift cards, so off Tony and I went to spend our “free” money.  That’s the best kind, you know.

We desperately needed bedside tables to replace the mismatch/unsturdy ones we had been using until we found something great.  We met with Eddy at Sunshine Lucy’s, told him our idea, and within 15 minutes we had a sketch of two tables, exactly how we wanted them!

Off Eddy went to build and paint, and two weeks later, we got the call that they were ready.  And man were we thrilled with how they turned out!

Check it out!

Yes, this difference in design is intentional 🙂
Jenny = left, Tony = right
He used a milk wash paint over reclaimed wood.
My favorite part is the exposed wood, which gives it a real shabby chic feel.

And who doesn’t get excited over funky knobs?

Lot’s of space on top…

And inside!

And a perfect fit (well almost).  Due to the bedroom door, we have everything shifted over to the left a bit.   But it works!

If you live in the Boston area, definitely check out Sunshine Lucy’s!


Last Stop: Sunshine Lucy’s

14 Apr

We did it!   We made it to our last stop on the Antique shop hop/Vintage store crawl/Medford & Somerville shopping trip – whatever you want to call the journey 🙂

Stop #4
Sunshine Lucy’s
93 Holland Street
Somerville, MA 02144

Sunshine Lucy’s is just off the main drag in Davis Square.  They specialize in taking older pieces of furniture and adding new life to them by restoring their natural beauty or creating something totally different. They do a lot of bright colored repaint makeovers, and are killer with bold fabric reupholster jobs.  They also collect a lot of unique vintage pieces that are perfect just for show in your home!

The owner of this shop is actually married to the woman who runs Bella Decor in Arlington, which I blogged about a few weeks ago here.  Um, can I be part of your artistic and fun family pleeeease???

Hi there.

There are so many cool things you could do with this piece (besides hold your collection of vintage coke bottles of course).  Hang it up for a spice rack?  Compartment for sunglasses, keys and other every day items?

I want these!!  Either as coasters, or to tile a boring end table.  YUM.

Hands down, my favorite piece of the entire day!  And it’s comfortable!!

Didn’t I tell you burlap was in?

The Purchases:
Jackie scored two really cool items at this shop:

This was an antique milk crate – and is now a magazine holder.  LOVE!

A set of vintage watering cans.  Can’t wait to see what she does with them!

And what better way to end our tour than with a few words of wisdom…

This poster from Sunshine Lucy’s is a GREAT take on the Keep Calm and Carry On Posters.

Wear boots and pretend it’s cold…
Jump puddles and curse frizzy hair…
Wear bikini and avoid mirrors…
Eat candy and regret decisions…
Say thanks and exchange for jewelry…
