This summer I scored a super cute side table at a yard sale. The poor thing was sitting in pieces all by itself. I thought even if I couldn't fix it, it would only be a $2 loss. I snatched it up along with Harry Potter Scene-It. Best $4 I ever spent! = )
A few months back I found this adorable little seat over at Perfectly Imperfect. I fell in love! I knew I wanted to do something in my house yellow, but what? Then I remembered the cute little side table I scored during summer yardsaling! Here she is in all her before beauty.
It was nearing the end of the semester, AKA final exams and projects, so I needed to get this bad boy done quickly! Spray paint it was. If I haven't mentioned it before, I'll mention it now. I HATE SPRAY PAINT! But I needed a quick fix.
I began spray painting, and much to my disgust the table sucked it up. That's right, sucked it up. It was like something off The Twilight Zone. I could see some of the yellow sticking, so I left it overnight and bought a more heavy duty version of the spray paint the next day. That did the trick. A little spray paint and glaze later I had an awesome side table!
Like that wedding photo? Haha!! Almost four years later and I still have the generic wedding photo in it. *Sigh* One day I'll get a photo of me and the hubby in it.
I love the detail on this table.
My favorite part of all? It was so cheap! I love it in all its imperfectness (is that even a word?)
i am with you- i don't like to use spray paint, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! it looks fabulous- yellow always brightens things up!ReplyDelete
