This side table before and after is WAY overdue. It's actually a project from this summer when I went to NYC to help my sister-in-law furnish her apartment, but I was so excited about outcome that I forgot to take an "after" shot and had to wait until I went back to visit last weekend (bad blogger!). The cute little hand-me-down side table started out pretty ho-hum.
It had a great shape and solid construction, so I knew it could be something special. With a quart of "oops paint" from Home Depot for a whole $2 and spray paint I already had, this may be one of the most fabulous $2 make-overs you'll ever see.
After 2 coats of our blue-gray "oops" paint, it was time to make it shine. Literally. The shelf was just held in with a few screws, so I removed it and taped off the legs using painters tape and plastic bags.
Then I went spray-happy in an NYC alley way. I'm a rebel like that. I think gold spray paint is slowly becoming one of my favorite tools. I might start spraying things just for fun. You've been warned. Don't be surprised if you see a sprayed gold kitten or Hubby in the near future.
May I remind you that it only cost TWO DOLLARS! The finished result makes me completely giddy. I wish all my projects were this easy!
Ain't she pretty?
