My living room is coming along nicely! My new sofa was delivered last week, but the pillows (which are the best part) aren't here yet so I don't want to post pics of that quite yet. I have had lots of time to work on projects since I haven't been preoccupied with Facebook, Pinterest, and whatever else it is that takes up so much of my time. The first that I will share is the makeover of this table that my mom bought me from a garage sale. It was in terrible shape, but had really pretty, delicate lines. I actually wondered if it was an antique because of those lion head pulls and matching numbers on the drawers and table frame, but I couldn't find anything about it online so I figured I would go ahead and paint it. Hopefully I didn't just destroy a valuable piece!
The table actually sat in my guest room for several months because I couldn't decide what to do with it. It seemed daunting because of the shape it was in. I ended up sanding it down, filling some dents with wood filler and priming it before I even decided what color to paint it.
I finally decided that because it is so delicate looking, it had to have some pink on it somewhere, but I didn't want the whole table pink. Because I'm doing coral and navy in my living room, I chose to paint just the bottom 5 inches or so of the legs coral to give the illusion of being dipped in paint. Then I was inspired by a chest I found online to paint the drawers zebra print. If you know me, you know I am usually not into animal prints, but I thought this table could use a little something special on the drawers. I also replaced those lion head pulls with more contemporary glass knobs. (You also get a sneak peak at my sofa in these pics!)
I actually love the way this little table turned out, but I may end up selling it eventually.
Here's one last before and after.
