You may remember me mentioning this table in the Golden Girls post and here's part of my inspiration...
And this is what it looks like in our living room:
I put two coats of Kilz on first and then just painted it with a sponge to give it a smoother look with out visible brush strokes. It is hard to see in photos but the color is a soft gray that I happened to already have a quart of!
I wanted to try something light for the table since the rug is so dark. Interesting tid bit - the area rug was inherited and it's massive and over 100 years old! I think it's like 18 x 12?! Hence why I wanted something a little lighter in color on top.
So whatcha think for $75 and some elbow grease?!
