So first off....I hate this table....no storage, but I decided to give it a second chance...
We first bought this table like 6 years ago when we were in the apartment...it was pine colored, we painted it black right away and put the fish tank on it, behind the couch (not the smartest idea)...we were lucky it didn't fall and flood the apartment below....
I hate this table because it doesn't provide me any storage and I need it!! So I've been searching and searching for a buffet table, dresser, console with storage to redo....but I have been searching and not found it yet. So after seeing multiple people paint many different furniture pieces different colors and thinking I would never do that...to me, furniture should be black, brown or white.....omg I'm a furniture racist.....well not anymore! I've seen the error in my ways! :) I was watching Parenthood the other night (btw, best show ever......love love, yeah I even linked to it to make sure you click on it and see the awesomeness).....and they had a blue/teal console/buffet like table and a red bookshelf in the same room and as crazy as all the color combos were, it looked so amazing.....so Friday I decided that I wanted to paint my horrible little table blue and then maybe i'd let it stick around longer.....
I went to Home Depot on my lunch break hoping to find the perfect blue already premade but no such luck so I picked out a quart of Behr's 'Gulf Winds' and started painting the second I got home. p.s. I could have literally painted this table with a sample instead of a quart, i barely dug into that paint....wonder what else I can paint blue?! :)
I looooove it.
Now I'm trying every opportunity to make the rest of the room brighter in other ways because this area is so bright it makes the rest of the room look dark. I think a good balance would be to get either lighter chair covers for the dining room or new chairs...hmmm
Oh, and a used sandpaper to scuff up the sides a little to make it look more...rustic? :)
