Welcome back Spring!

Eventhough we had a very mild winter, I am so happy that spring has arrived.  I can't wait to watch nature renew itself again, to see all the flowers bloom, to feel the warmth of the sun.  

So I found this table at a house that my realtor friend was selling.  Previous owners of the house left behind some of their furniture… Score!  Well it didn't seem like a "score" at first, the table was scratched up and needed some TLC.  I sanded it and sprayed with a primer paint.     

I wanted to paint the table silver, the best way to get a bright silver look is to use aluminum spray paint.    I found that there is a distinction between the coverage with different brands of spray paint.  Some of the paints I tried was too watery or too thin.  The best one I found was Premium Decor Paint from True Value,  it gave it an excellent coverage with one coat.  But just to make sure, I gave it two coats of paint and sprayed on a clear sealer.  

I love the way the silver looks, it give the table the glamourous touch that I was after.

I am using it for a side table next to my couch, not sure if that is where the table going to stay.  It doesn't really go with the rest of my very brown furniture I have in my livingroom, which I can't wait to change.  Maybe this is the start of the change in my livingroom.  


  1. Wow it turned out so pretty. I love how that silver covered and rich look it gave the table. Just lovely. I'm a new follower and thanks for coming by my blog and leaving kind words.

  2. Hey there, your table looks great, it really was a score.I love the way you phrased when Spring arrives...nature renewing itself. Love that. Have a great day.

  6. It is fabulous!! I LOVE it in silver!! (You know I can't get enough of silver!) Great tip with the aluminum paint- I've been wondering if that would give a better silver finish than normal "silver" spray paint- I'll have to try it!
    You have a great living room by the way- those dark wood floors, the big open space, that giant windows (or doors- can't tell from the pic) and the exposed brick...it has so much character and a really cool feel- it'd be a super fun room to decorate!

  7. Love the transformation. I have a couple of chairs I wanted to "glam up" but wasn't quite sure how to do it. This looks like it is just the ticket. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from A Round Tuit.
