Today, I've been spray painting furniture! I love spray paint. By spending no more than $10 and 30 mintues, you can get a brand new piece of decor. My parents moved back to Austin recently and I was
thrilled saddened to learn that some of their old furniture didn't fit into their new home. Boo-hoo for them, new furniture for us! Neither Marcos nor I are crazy about wicker but what we are crazy about is....free furniture!!!
Here's the before picture of the wicker side table:
Here's the after:
This is not the original color that I wanted. I thought about painting the tables a blueish teal color to compliment the painting above the bed (here's the story of the painting). Unfortunately, the only blue colors available were Smurf blue. This color is "Greek Stone." I like it, but if I end up dying because of inhaled fumes, I'm not sure I can say this was worth it.
Here's our side table for the past 7.5 years. Boooooo.
The table before was basically just a piece of cardboard with a white tablecloth and glass top.
Here is the entire bedroom with the new tables!
Here's a MUCH better picture... :)
This is my princess saying, "Mommy, I just LOVE your new bedside tables! And by the way, Mommy, you are just too gorgeous for words!!!" As you can tell, she's very advanced for a 20 month old.
All in all, I'm pretty excited about my new tables. I'm ecstatic about having drawers in which to put my many books. The spray paint on the wicker (on my table in particular) is somewhat blotchy, but in the words of the New Kids on the Block, "what'cha gonna do about it?"
