I hope you all had a great weekend!! We had a good balance of relaxation and progress on stuff around the house. We got done one project that I’ve had on my list for awhile now, and started on another one that we’re really excited about! But I’ll get to that one later this week
You may recall a green end table (from our previous header image) that lived in our living room for quite some time. But let’s go back for a second….we originally bought it off Craigslist for $10. It’s solid wood with some retro character, so I’d say that’s a pretty good deal.
Then I painted it green and hand-painted a little design on top and added a pull.
This was pretty much my second project ever, and at the time I was proud! But over time, seeing it more and more, the uglier and uglier it got. BUT as any DIYer knows, sometimes we just don’t get it right the first time. It’d be cool if we did, but sometimes it just doesn’t turn out how you envision it. Le sigh….
So when I came across some new end tables for a steal, I didn’t hesitate to buy them, and this little guy was shoved into a dark corner of one of our guest rooms. He was green with envy. har har!
I felt bad for him, and still wanted to give him a bright future…a really bright future! So I decided to do this project over. I stumbled upon the inspiration for its second makeover here.
A trip to Lowes and $9 later, we came home with a can of metallic gold spray paint and a sample of Valspar’s Turquoise Tint. After a couple coats of paint, this sweet table really shines!
We thought the drips on the legs were a fun touch.
I love the new pop of color! This would look awesome next to a white couch or in a crisp white bedroom next to a bed with a white duvet. Can you picture it?!

What do you think about this table’s new look? Do you like the retro green or the bright blue better? Or do you think I’m crazy for choosing such bold colors in both makeovers?!!! It’s okay if you say “yes” to that last one hehe
