Anyway, we've added white shelves (IKEA) and white was already one of the accent colors, but it took me forever to realize that a white coffee table is what I wanted. So, my options: buy one from IKEA (a 40 min drive from our house... with a grabby-grabby, hates-being-confined toddler) or paint the one we already have. Spray paint? Yes, please!
I used Rust-Oleum's Universal spray paint in white. Took me 3 cans, lots of coats, and a few days. Although, I'm sure that for those expert crafty spray painters out there, like Brooke from All Things Thrifty or Sheri & John from Young House Love, it'd be 1 can, 1 coat, and 1 day = perfection. This table = not perfection, but I still love the results. Makes me happy every time I walk by and think about how it used to look.
|Can you see the glass-covered wicker? Or the gold trim|
that the glass is resting on? Classy.
The wicker and the gold are now white. And I discovered that the glass was actually tinted glass. I haven't decided how I feel about it, but I kinda think it makes it more unique and gives it a cool little somethin' somethin'.
|Ahhh, no more gold :)|
