I’ll cut right to the chase! First I should note, these pics are camera phone pics because my camera is still in the shop. I didn’t go with either of the fabrics I showed you for my little coffee table makeover. But I did get rid of those water marks one way or another. Does this help you out?!
Here’s the deal. Hubby kindly expressed to me that he wasn’t the biggest fan of the navy or leopard fabric (in case you missed that post, you can check it out here). And when I asked about magenta, I got the look. Hah!
All I could do was laugh. He had a point. He does, in fact, live here too. We talked it over and made a little deal– If he’d come with me to the craft store and help me pick something out, then I wouldn’t use anything crazy. DEAL.
This is where we landed.
But I have a little secret I’m not quite ready to share. Just stay tuned. I promise it’s pretty dang cool. Each bag of marbles is a buck at Dollar Tree. I bought ten bags. Not bad. We chose a few different shades in the same color family to tie in with the green buffet and blue end table.
The how-to is coming soon! In the meantime, here are the after photos! I love the way it turned out!!!
Bye bye, water marks.
I’m a huge fan of faux bamboo.
A glimpse of the coffee table in the front room…
Such a fun pop in our front room!! For a $40 table, I’m really happy with it! What do you think?! You know it’s not a complete reveal without a before and after shot!
p.s. I will share the how-to post when I tell you my secret! You can read all about how I sanded and painted the coffee table here!
