I’ve been noticing a lot of “two end table-like” coffee tables lately.
So when I saw these old end tables in my garage (yes, we are still unpacking), I figured they would work for a coffee table.
What happened to my old coffee table? I sold it before the move, figuring it would be too big for the space. I think everything I sold, I actually could have used, and everything I kept is now sitting in my garage.
So here’s what I started with. Found them for a dollar each at a yard sale! They are plastic and so I had used them outside at our last place. You may remember seeing them on my back porch.
Then I spray painted them with white spray paint (should have probably used a paint/primer) and then I hand painted the rest with BM Dove White and a Purdy brush to get in all the little details.
Note: I used Dove White because I had a sample on hand from Lowes or Home Depot. They both sell samples for around $3 and it is plenty of paint to do a small furniture piece!
…and I love my couch.
…and my fluffy pillow my friend gave me for my birthday.
I know I’m sounding sappy, or silly, or both, but the room is coming together nicely, which is always a sigh of relief and happiness for a design lover. There are so many times when it doesn’t come together easily with things you have on hand.
Can you tell what one of my upcoming projects will be?
