Table Transformation

I love my house - but if there was one thing I can't stand about it, it would be the monochromatic color scheme. Beige carpet, beige couches, brown furniture, brown drapes and taupe walls. GAG.

Yesterday, I gave this brass lamp a makeover which inspired me to do something about the drab table.

In the background you can see our guesthouse... which really deserves its own blog.

On my way home from taking the twins for some blood work, I stopped by Home Depot and perused the Rustoleum spray paint selection looking for the perfect "happy" shade.

While the twins were napping, I gave it two coats of "Lagoon", let it dry, then roughed it up with some sandpaper. I love the varying colors, from the new "Lagoon" to the dark brown and then the light original wood peeking through at spots.

I am loving this color! Now, what to paint next??
