Happy Wednesday, all. I hope my fellow East-coasters made it through the hurricane OK.
I have a little before and after to share with you today: my entryway table. Much like the bamboo number in my old home that I scored for a steal on Craigslist, I needed a tiny table for my entryway here. The table had to squeeze in the small space behind the door but not block access to my hall closet. I found the table, perfectly sized, at Wal-Mart at the very perfect price of about $35. The only hitch: it was medium brown wood. See?
Paint is the easiest fix imaginable, and everything else about it was perfect, so I went for it. I finally got around to this project and used two coats of my favorite Zinsser oil-based primer and two coats of Sherwin Williams Pro-Classic Dover White, followed by two light coats of Polycrilic. And ... voila!
Doesn't it look so much better? I think it will look even better once I get rid of that awful paint color on the walls and add something a little warmer. I changed the hardware on the table, too. I found this cute seaglass green glass knob at Anthropologie for about $10. I think it's really sweet.
I shopped my home and found some things for the top, which automatically made the entire area look more homey. All that is left now is a durable rug and runner for the entryway floor. Jamie and I are planning to hit up the Pottery Barn outlet soon, so here's hoping they have a lovely jute number with my name on it!
So, what do you think? Have you painted any furniture lately? Please do share!
See you swoon,
