I found three new little tables at the local 'second hand shop'. They were in great condition and already painted the colors I wanted. I purchased all three for only $86.00! I think it was a bargain price! So, this is table number one, and I think Miss Lilly likes it.
Table number two. This is actually a small bench and the lid lifts open, but it's perfect as a little side table. Table number one and two went into the family room area.
And, this delightful little find is table number three. This little guy went into the living room. Can you believe I got all three for $86 bucks. What a steal!
A week before hubby left I brought this lovely rug home. I was looking for a new area rug for the family room area. I wanted something with subtle colors. Colors that tied into the painted accent walls. I found this beauty at 'Linens & Things'. The store is closing so I snagged it up cheap!
And... here's my paint re-do. The coffee table in the living room was a re-do from our last home. I had originally painted it a fern green with a slightly lighter top and stenciled ivy on it. Now, it's black with red undertones. I painted the top solid black.
I first painted it a cherry red, and once dry I lightly went over the red with black. I painted the top a solid black.
See, just a hint of red undertones on the sides and legs!
Just a peak of the living room ....there's the newly painted coffee table. I'm thinking of painting the secretary the same as the table. I just really have to think on this one. I'm not totally committed to painting that piece yet.
And ....just another peak. See there's a glimpse of the new little red table and a corner of the coffee table.
Now for some advice. Should I paint this little cabinet red with black undertones? The two chairs flanking this little piece are due to get new slipcovers. I'm thinking a small black check fabric!
So what do you think paint or not to paint?
Here's the little cabinet I think I should paint.
