Now, on to the fun stuff. I have been fighting a bug for the past few days, but today it got the best of me. I had the chills so bad this morning that I called in sick to work. I don't know about you, but when I am sick, I do not take the time to get better. I think of all the things that need to be done and I work on them. I bought this at Goodwill about a month ago for $2.04 and wasn't 100% sure what to do with it.
I have been seeing tables finished with chrome and metal paint all over the place. One of my favorites is over at
that is gorgeous
I decided to try this myself. Except, I wanted to try 2 different shades of metal. So, being a lover of heavy metal music - my 6 year old has a Metallica t-shirt - I got the tunes on and the paint out. The table turned out great, but doesn't go anywhere in my house. I want it in a foyer (which I don't have), so for now it is in my bedroom, looking a little lost.
Do you like the silver and bronze together? It is kind of hard to see in the pictures, but quite striking in real life.
I want a funky black basket with some bling on it to put in the bottom. Shopping trip!!! Or maybe I will attempt one myself. Who knows??
On a side note, I spent all of 5 minutes turning a crappy old frame into a new corkboard for my boo boo
Sometimes the simplest things look so great!!!
So, are you feeling the heavy metal love yet? Going to paint something in your house silver or gold?? If you do, make sure you post so I can continue to bang my head (horrible 80s reference, sorry) Pin It
