Confession: When we were first married, this little TV tray was our dining room table.
An Ikea oldie but goodie.
Maybe it was for that reason that I have kept it all these years.
For the past year, it’s sat in our bedroom reading nook, covered with a table cloth, relegated to holding the newest best sellers.
But in a flurry of creative energy, I decided that this little table had been neglected for far to long and it absolutely needed to be painted. Immediately.
While trying to figure out what color to redo our dresser, I picked up a sample of Valspar’s Mountain Smoke.
It didn’t end up working for the dresser, but it was perfect for my little table.
And because I’m really trying to work as much gold in as my husband will allow, I taped off the bottom and painted the feet gold.
I added another bit of gold to the side as well.
We’ve been side table-less for quite awhile. So this table was a much welcomed addition. And added a nice place for our new lamp to sit.
And I know it’s totally weird to have a sentimental attachment to a TV tray table, but we ate the first meal I ever cooked at this table. It may just become a family heirloom.
Do you hold on to furniture for sentimental reasons?
