508made: minty side table

March 26, 2012

You prob­a­bly fig­ured out by now that we like fur­ni­ture. Duh. I some­times stop &  think…“furniture is kind of a weird thing to love”…but then I get distracted…probably by a piece of fur­ni­ture. But we don’t just want to PAINT. We want to BUILD & DESIGN too. So, we start small. Meet our 508made minty side table:
508-made minty side table

We aren’t big into mod­ern or com­pli­cated design {obvi­ously}. Just usable fur­ni­ture that brings color to your home…

These pieces are NOT per­fect or alike.…

We want to make sim­ple fur­ni­ture that is MADE WELL so it can be WORN WELL.

We are not sell­ing these in our shop yet, but if you are inter­ested in Minty for your home, let us know.….… fiveoeightRD (at) gmail (dot) com. Minty is one of the first in a col­lec­tion of 508made stools and side tables that we will slowly be build­ing over the next months.

Oh, and just so you know. I am totally play­ing it cool right now, but inside I am all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG-DEAL-super-stoked-try-not-to-implode-with-ideas feeling.

    I love mint green it s so vintage!

  • I love this! I was won­der­ing what you use to seal your fur­ni­ture that gets used a lot? I recently painted (with latex) and dis­tressed an old dresser and am won­der­ing if I should & if so, what I would seal it with? I love the look of it now and I am scared that if I seal it with poly or wax it will change the look, but I need the top to be durable because I will be using it as a night­stand and mov­ing a lot. Any help would be great!!

      For this piece, I used clear fur­ni­ture wax. Depend­ing on the piece, I either use a poly, poly­crylic or fur­ni­ture wax. If you want a more matte look that doesn’t change the tone of the paint too much, i would use either satin poly­crylic or clear wax. Hope this helps!
