Anyway, my point is that I'm enjoying all these fun little projects without spending very much money. One project that I knew would make a difference was spray painting our side tables, coffee table and entry table for the living room. I love the style of these tables but they were just too dark for our new color palette.
Here is the before (not much of the table is actually in this picture but I think you can get an idea of what it looked like...someday maybe I'll remember to take "before" pictures):
Here is the after:
I am very happy with how the tables turned out. I spray painted them all a shade of flat ivory and then added a clear protective topcoat. They are so bright and cheery - can I describe a table that way?
