Sit back and watch, as Six the Side Table's spacious interior hides all your scattered stuff with super storage!
I had juuuuust started painting this piece when I remembered I had to take a before photo! Sheesh, at least I remembered. More than once I have straight up forgotten. (Upside down smiley face emoji).
These hexagon shaped cabinets must have been all the rage in the 70s-80s(??) because it seems that (if you're my age) everyone's grandma had one, or maybe still does! The trick with making these dated beauties new again is adding legs. And if you're wondering how, add 3 in the front three corners, and one in the back. I get pretty much all of my furniture legs from the Habitat for Humanity Restore. If you've never been, and you're a thrifter/fixer-upper type, or heck sometimes they stock items that are brand spanking new, you need to go. By shopping there you are supporting a great cause and reusing products that would have otherwise made it to the dump. Yay local economy! Yay mother earth! Because these cabinets are often straight up made of plastic, chalk paint is the way to go. I used Reloved in Storm, distressed it, and then sealed it with a blue tinged sealer I mixed up myself. Reloved is a local Edmonton comapny, so yay local econmy x2! I love the way this one turned out, I hope you do too. <3
Like what you see? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!
