Do you remember my Favorite Find Monday from last week? I have been hard at work completing the bedroom set for a customer. Today, I’m sharing the pair of bedside tables. The original tables were very “orangey” and my customer wanted to tone them down in a pastel hue.
I used Annie Sloan Versailles to calm them down into sweet, cottage tables. I added a punch of orange back into the tables with the ceramic drawer pulls and I love the look – especially for autumn!
Process: Two coats of Annie Sloan Versailles, light sanding with 200 grit to distress and smooth the finish, one coat of Annie Sloan clear wax to seal!
Quick Tip: I splurged a few months ago and purchased the Annie Sloan wax brush. It is pricey at $60, which is why it has taken me four years to purchase! I must admit – it is WONDERFUL and well worth the investment. It makes waxing SO much easier and faster and I clean it with dish soap in my kitchen sink. So easy 🙂
Suzanne, they are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
Thank you so much!!!
I love, love, love the color! Another fantastic makeover!
Thank you so much, Christine!
Great job! I think if they don’t sell right away, you could change to red knobs for Christmas!
Am so happy to see someone else using Versailles on painted pieces. I love the color and most recently painted a desk in that color.
I also painted a small desk in Versailles. It is such a gorgeous color and I feel underused! Thanks!
So beautiful, what a difference!
Is this a new color? I don’t see it in your Color Gallery.
I shall add it – thanks for the head’s up. It is not a new color but one of her originals. Cheers!

I love the color Versailles and helped a friend paint her kitchen cabinets that color and they looked fabulous. These tables look great in this color and I’m swooning over those gorgeous knobs! I ditto your sentiment about the Annie Sloan wax brush – I just love mine!
Hi Marie – isn’t the brush SO worth the investment?! I can’t believe it took me 4 years to purchase! I would love to see kitchen cabinets in Versailles. I never thought of it for a kitchen cabinet color and I bet they look fabulous. Thanks for the idea!
Suzanne I love them, they are gorgeous.
