A lot has happened over the past week, hence the recent halt in my never-ending search for cheap (but quality!) furniture for my sun room. Over the past 7 days, I got a new job (YAY!), had my first dinner party with some new friends here in Tulsa, and celebrated Connor’s birthday. After getting my reigns in though, I am anxious to get back out there and find the perfect pieces for my new room. Here is one idea I found on designsponge.com that is going to be my next project; DIY gold dipped side table:
I see tables like this ALL THE TIME at Salvation Army, Goodwill & countless other second hand stores for no more than $15 usually.
According to the directions, if the table I choose is laminate (or has a veneer finish), I will need to sand and then prime the table with white acrylic paint first.
Next, I will give the table 3 coats of white spray paint. After the paint dries, just simply tape the legs off to a desired measurement and spray paint the ends gold. And then you have this:
Not too bad! Here is another version they have posted if you aren’t into the whole gold thing:
And look, a little bunny 😉

Oh, and happy Tuesday!
