Side table makeover...

This adorable little side table is one of two I was given. Originally it had the same finish as the table below, but that wasn't working for me, so I painted it in my new favorite furniture color: Sandstone Cove, the same color I painted the armoire that's also in the living room. It was a simple project ~ a little light sanding and three coats of paint with primer included. I could have gotten away with just two coats, but I like to put an extra coat on things that are likely to get a lot of use. I think it makes the paint look great longer.

It turned out great, don't you think? And with its unusual lines, it's a lovely little addition to the living room. Tomorrow, after three months of work, I'm going to show you the whole living room. My drapes are still being made and I need to get rid of the brown ceiling fan, but other than that, it's pretty much done ~ it's definitely close enough to show all of you. Be sure to pop back tomorrow for the reveal!
