We have been having the most amazing weather lately. Which makes it so hard to get anything done inside the house!! I did however find a project that goes inside but I could work on when I am outside. Projects always get done a little faster with a little Vitamin D on board.
So, check out my new “Coastal-Industrial” side tables!!
I have been working to overhaul my house from dark browns/burgundys/reds to a light, bright airy feeling with touches of blue.
These end tables began as a steal find from Hobby Lobby years ago. They were so dark and had obviously seen way better days.
Awhile back I found a small box that I fell in love with. It has a bit of industrial edge and I used this as my inspiration for the tables. Sometimes my inspiration comes from the weirdest places!
I love the coastal look so I definitely knew that I was going to go blue with the tables. I mixed up several versions of paint and never found anything that I liked. I ended up using a Krylon spray paint in Bahama Breeze. The table was lightly sanded and then I waited until it was a windy day and took the table outside and did a quick coat of paint on it. My goal was for the table to look maybe a little bit more like metal than wood. I added a nail head trim to give it a little glamour. And this is what I came up with…
I love how imperfect the paint is in contrast with the nail head trim.
It is so fun to get the table put back in its place and add a few accessories!! You can probably tell from the number of pics this is totally my favorite part.
Now that I have the tables in place I am going to have to work a little harder to get the rest of the room to work with them…this room still has a red/gold ottoman and curtains!!
