For the life of me I cannot find my before picture. Ack! The worse part is that I knew I took one! I love the shape of this table and the metal middle part just gives it some extra charm.
Here is my first after picture:
I painted this in Old White and Duck Egg Blue, topped with clear wax. Then I added some great glass like knobs on the top drawer. As I stood back taking pictures, I realized that all I could see was the wood inside. Fail (did you notice my other fail? I just noticed I only put one knob back on on the door!)
I painted the inside Old White to make the metal doors really pop.
Now, after another redo:
Much better, huh?
I also wanted to share a quick project I did. I'm really trying to fill my new space with more decorative items now, I've got the furniture. I found a few great tutorials on how to make burlap wreaths. I kind of combined them to suit my tastes and ended up with a fabulous looking wreath. This one is a beige burlap with vintage-y black writing on it. I also bought some orange burlap and made some for fall. I hung it around this old window I found and just touched up with some Old White and a bunch o' sanding. I think I"ll sell it as a set, plus it'll look great in my space!
