We got this little side table from someone who was cleaning out their garage.
And at my favorite price: free!
I immediately knew that I wanted to paint this little table a vibrant color.
It already had personality with its curvy legs and I wanted to play up that fact. So I picked green. I’m still actively trying to add my pops of green in. I wasn’t sure that painting it was the way to go. I don’t want to overdo it with painted furniture.
Before I could talk myself out of it I picked up a small jar of Valspar’s Jungle Thicket. But it was too green. I added a bottle of craft paint in Citron it was perfect.
I used the same chalk paint recipe as I did with our TV console makeover and again, I’m in love with chalk paint. It went on so easy and in about two coats it was completely covered.
I used a spray enamel to seal the paint and to up the shine factor.
We are running out of space for furniture in our living room but I found the perfect wall for it in the hallway.
Since styling has become one of my favorite things to do, I decided to go monochromatic with my accessories.
Two green books and a white vase filled with green and silver Christmas ornaments.
Its a small addition but the color makes me smile. It ties in nicely with the rest of the room and will add a nice place for fresh flowers after Christmas.
What do you think? Is my little green table over the top color wise? What do you think of color pops on furniture?
