Here's a simple project, with before/after photos already taken and edited. ;) I haven't had a lot of computer time lately, as you can probably imagine!
So, we have our lovely living room and new couch and all set up, which is great, but we have very little in the way of horizontal surfaces... or lamps... desperate for side tables! I'm not sure exactly what kind we'll want, or what will go with the rest of the decor, but for now I need ANYTHING! So I found this little vintage wood side table at Goodwill for $7.99. It was already the subject of a DIY project; had been spray painted silver on the legs and black on the top. I didn't dig the color scheme, but saw potential.
I like they idea they were going for, but it didn't really work. I made the whole thing gold!!
Looks much better with the soft greys and ivories; not competing for that neutral tone. And it goes with our gold coffee table!
Lots more where that came from--I've been a furniture-updating machine lately! Sure feels good to cross simple projects like that off the list!
