On Monday, I mentioned that I bought myself a new coffee table from an estate sale over the weekend.
The table, which only cost $45, was the perfect size and silhouette, but the walnut wood and black metal combination left something to be desired.
I've been lusting after a brass-and-glass coffee table since January so I thought I'd try to get this $45 option as close to my $$$ inspiration tables as possible (see those tables here).
Luckily enough, the table base and wood top came apart easily, and I quickly got to work with the same gold spray paint that I used for my bedroom chandelier.
I opted to prime and paint the wood top in glossy white (don't worry, wood purists: it wasn't in great shape).
After enough drying time, I put the base and top back together and sat back to enjoy my new coffee table.
Take a peek:
Maybe someday I'll swap the wood top for a beautiful piece of carrera marble.
But for now, I'm thrilled with the change.
If you recall my post on coffee tables in January, you'll remember that getting a new coffee table was objective #1 for 2012. Check that one off the list!
