I Love Spray Paint (and Naptime Too)!


One afternoon last week while E was napping, I decided it was time to paint the old, rickety side table in the den. To say I dislike the table would be giving it a compliment! A lot of things need changing in our den (some took place this weekend!), and this one was a quick and easy fix that involved my favorite tool...spray paint!

A look at the table before. That ugly recliner has got to go!

A bigger view. Yep, I made that sunburst mirror this summer out of wood shims. A $40 project that I love!
Sidenote: That tapestry was made from a photo my amazing Granddaddy took on one of his many travels.

I sanded the table down a bit since it had such a glossy coating on it.

These were my partners in crime. The color for the table is "strawflower".

Every girl needs this little accessory!

Primed and ready to paint! The leaves of the table come down if you twist the top.

All ready to go back upstairs! I did a little distressing after I took this picture. The perfect yellow paint job was bugging me a bit. It needed to be messed up!

A little distressing did the trick!






I think it looks so much better! Now, what to do about that lamp and chair!
Update: The lamp has been made over! Pics to come soon!

Love the table. Spray paint the lamp too! Add a new shade if you don't like that one and you will have a new lamp! I've done it several times, sometimes to the same lamp :)
