A few months ago I finally got around to giving our coffee table and matching end table a face lift. So I've been meaning to share it with you and finally got around to snapping some photos today!
We bought these when we got married, over 14 years ago, and while I still loved their clean lines, they just really didn't go with our room anymore. Especially since hubby now finally appreciates painted furniture!
He's always been all about the wood! Wood tones everywhere! You will see what I mean in a second!!
The tables are very well made, so I didn't want to just get rid of them. They are solid wood and made by Broyhill. I knew that some creamy white paint would totally change their look and feel!
See what I mean about lots of wood? I am not a fan of the wood walls in the least (that is hubby's taste), but I guess a girl's gotta pick her battles, right?!
I keep telling him that our next home will have beadboard. Lots of white beadboard!!
Notice Katie on the couch? As soon as I was about to have my little "photo shoot", she decided she wanted to get in on the fun, and promptly hopped on the couch!
Of course I forgot to take before shots of the tables, but you can get a peek at what they used to look like in the photo below.
I used a nice creamy white by Behr, the same color we used on our dining table and chairs.
I'm so happy with how they turned out!
What a pretty puppy!
I used several coats of paint, let cure for a few days, then distressed just a bit around the edges.
Then I used a clear satin sealer for protection. And since I loved the oil rubbed bronze drawer handles, I left them as is. I think they make such a nice contrast to the creamy white.
I'm amazed at how a few coats of paint totally transformed their look and feel!
Of course, one thing leads to another, so I had to paint the basket that I keep magazines in, too!
I just gave it a quick coat of creamy white spray paint, to give it more of a whitewashed feel.
So now I want to repaint our other end table!
This is it, on the other side of the couch. It belonged to my mom, and she gave it to me years ago.
I eventually want to replace the wicker rocker (which will go back to its original home in our bedroom).
I do love it, but it is oh so uncomfortable to sit in! I adore chairs with lots of tufted buttons on the back, so that will be the look I go for.
Here's a better look, without the tablecloth. Since the top is very shiny, I'll use a deglosser first, and paint it the same creamy color.
I can hardly wait to start!
Here is one last look.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a great day!
